The Maryland Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® is proud to announce its 19th Annual Race for the Cure. As Komen Maryland’s largest fundraiser, 75 percent of the net funds raised will go to local programs that offer a comprehensive range of breast health service, from screening and treatment to support services, across the state of Maryland. The remaining 25 percent is distributed at a national level to fund lifesaving research, often taking place at Maryland institutions.
The race is comprised of a 5k (3.1 miles) competitive run (timed), a 5k recreational run, a 5k walk and a 1-mile family fun walk. The 1-mile family fun walk is recommended for families with children and participants who prefer a shorter route.
This year’s race will feature honorary chairs, including Governor Martin O’Malley, Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz and Baltimore City Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.
