Susan G. Komen Western New York Race for the Cure

Take action in the fight to end breast cancer at the 14th Annual Susan G. Komen Western New York Race for the Cure® on Saturday, June 14th at the Delaware Park Rose Garden. The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® Series is the world's largest and most successful fundraising and education event for breast cancer ever created. Your participation in the Komen WNY event event helps to provide significant funds and bring awareness about breast cancer to the WNY community. Whether you walk, run, volunteer or donate, your support is helping us save lives and provide priceless support to those in need.

Not a runner? No problem! You can participate by walking our 5K or 1-mile course or just relax by the finish line and cheer for the finishers.

Register on-line at and invite your friends and family to join you! 75% of the money raised stays right here in Western New York in the fight against breast cancer. This family friendly event is a celebration of survivorship and way to honor and remember those who lost their battle with breast cancer.

Breast Cancer Survivors are encouraged to register and each will receive a special pink survivor T-Shirt to wear on Race Day along with an invitation to the Survivor Breakfast at Delaware Park prior to the event. Everyone is invited to join in the celebration during the post race program and cheer for our survivors during the inspirational Survivor Parade.

Runners and walkers will line up for the 5K or 1 Mile Fun Run at 10am and join in the post race celebration at the Rose Garden following the race.
