Thank you for fundraising for Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure®!

At Komen, we are so grateful that you dedicate your time and energy to giving back to your community. We appreciate you being More Than Pink and making the biggest impact possible in the fight against breast cancer.

The money raised from race participants and teams helps to provide screenings, education and treatments to individuals facing a breast cancer diagnosis right here in our community.

Did you know that if you asked 10 friends for $10, you would be providing an uninsured individual with a mammogram? It only takes asking to make a difference in someone's life.

Mark your calendars and spread the word about these FUNdraising challenges leading up to Race Day:

February Challenge - Win a Bucky Book!

Congratulations to Patty Grubb, who successfully raised the most money between February 1 - 28! She received a Bucky Book for winning February's Fundraising Challenge.

Our 2016 Pink Honor Roll is More Than Pink Logo.png

Each year, the top individual Race for the Cure fundraisers become members of a new class of the prestigious Pink Honor Roll. These women and men have overwhelmed us with their generosity and dedication to the fight against breast cancer. As an extra thank you, Pink Honor Roll members also receive exclusive incentives.

Although Race for the Cure is a single-day event, many of our fundraisers commit to collecting donations throughout a significant portion of the year. In 2016, this elite group of supporters raised a cumulative total of more than $77,750 to further our mission in South Central Wisconsin. That makes a real difference close to home!

Congratulations to the 2016 Pink Honor Roll members:
