Fundraising FAQs

Q: What is the cost to Register for the Race?
Adult registration (18 and up) is $36 and Child Registration (3 to 17) is $20.  Note: You must register to receive an Officical Race t-shirt. Your Registration fee helps to cover the cost of operations but personal giving and fundraising is what enables Komen to save lives here locally.

Q: Does the Komen Race for the Cure® require fundraising?
You are not required to fundraise, but we do encourage all participants to fundraise above the entry fee. Just Imagine the IMPACT – If every Race participant raises just $100, in addition to their registration fee, we would bring in an additional $600,000 to support local screening, treatment and educational programs in our community!

Q: Does the money raised stay right here in our community?
Yes! All of our net proceeds fund vital programs – up to seventy-five percent (75%) of the net income funds breast cancer screening and treatment  and breast cancer health education programs right here in our community and the remaining twenty-five percent (25%) fund scientific research.  There are currently six Komen scientific research grants in Florida with funding over $3.2 million.
