Komen Race for the Cure

Nancy Brinker founded the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, now known simply as Susan G. Komen, in 1982, after losing her only sister to breast cancer. The first Race for the Cure took place in Dallas in 1983, drawing 800 participants.

The first Komen Race for the Cure in Toledo was in 1994. The first race in Findlay was in 2013. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, organizers were forced to make the Findlay races virtual events in both 2020 and 2021.

Last year, the 28th annual Toledo race was held in person.

The popular 5K runs and fitness walks raise money for breast cancer research, care, community, and action, according to Susan G. Komen Northwest Ohio.

The Race for the Cure events provides year-round funding for anyone in need of breast cancer screenings, breast cancer treatments, childcare and transportation for patients, breast-health education, advocacy and more.
