Race for the Cure, also known as the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure is a global, annual, fitness walk and run to raise funds for Breast Cancer. The Western NY Affiliate race is held in June each year. The Race for the Cure is the largest series of 5k walks/runs in the world, over 100 cities and foreign countries have participated. Since 2005, well over one million people have joined.

The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer foundation was founded in 1982 by Nancy Goodman Brinker, Susan Goodman Komen's sister. Right before Komen's battle with breast cancer ended, Brinker made a promise to Komen she would do whatever it takes to speed up breast cancer research, and Buffalo is one of more than 120 cities worldwide to participate in the Race for the Cure

More information about the race in any city, not only in Buffalo, can be found at Find A Race on Susan G. Komen website.
