13 Counties. One Community-wide pledge to keep our MISSION MOVING!

We are very excited to announce that the Komen Charlotte Race for the Cure, presented locally by Novant Health, is going virtual this year!  While we will miss seeing everyone in person, we know that our community will come together to support Komen’s mission to help individuals fighting breast cancer while investing in much-needed research. Cancer has not taken a pause during the COVID-19 pandemic and we cannot wait to see our Charlotte and surrounding communities come together for the cause in a different way!”   – Amy Hastings, Race Chair 2017-2019

While we may not be able to gather in a large group in Uptown Charlotte this year, we will keep our mission moving forward from communities and neighborhoods across our 13 counties and share experiences on Race day through social media, TV and more. Walk with your friends, race with your team – get creative and just have fun!

Our virtual event, and the week leading up to it, will be filled with exciting and meaningful ways for everyone to feel a tremendous sense of community, celebration and empowerment while protecting your health and well-being.

Race for the Cure is an annual celebration and reminder of how far we have come with this movement. Survivors, MBC Thrivers and their families are the true pulse of the Race.

While the event culminates with the Race, the true impact comes from our community working together for several months in advance to raise money and encourage participation of friends and family. Now that we are in a virtual sphere, think of how far we can extend our reach!

With every new person who gets involved and every dollar raised, we increase Susan G Komen’s ability to achieve our mission to save lives by meeting the most critical needs in our communities, investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer, delivering direct patient services and achieving health equity through partnerships, collaborations and advocacy.

You can take action today! The moment you register for Race for the Cure, you join us on an empowering journey of celebration and hope.
