Register now for Race for the Cure®!

Registration is now open for the 2012 Komen Miami/Ft. Lauderdale Race for the Cure®, taking place at Bayfront Park in Downtown Miami on Saturday, October 20th. Every year, thousands of breast cancer survivors and supporters come together to participate in the 5K run and walk which raises funds to provide breast cancer treatment, prevention programs and further breast cancer research for women in need in Miami-Dade, Broward and Monroe counties. Last year’s Race for the Cure® had a record-breaking 23,628 participants and raised over $1.8M!

Early bird registration is available for $27 online and will go up October 13th. In hopes of surpassing our fundraising goals, we are encouraging all participants to take part in the Power of 10 Challenge: If every Race participant collected just $100, the 2012 Komen Race for the Cure would raise over $2,000,000 in pledges alone!

For more information and to register, go to www.komenmiaftl.org/komen-race-for-the-cure.

More updates on the 2012 Komen Miami/Ft. Lauderdale Race for the Cure to come so stay tuned!

  1. Thank you so much for mentioning that men can also develope breast cancer. My father had breast cancer and passed away in 1984 and when I tell people they are very surprised and say that they didn’t know that men could get it. Please, we need it mentioned more often so that men will also realize that this is not only a female desease. Commercials never include males in the statistics.

  2. Thank you for your comment, Katie! We couldn’t agree more.This year, it is estimated that about six cases of male breast cancer will be diagnosed each day in the U.S., which is very alarming. Thank you for helping us spread the word!
