Susan G. Komen Bahamas Race for the Cure
Saturday 19th January 2019
An event that honors men and women who have lost their fight to breast cancer and also celebrates those who won their fight will head into its ninth year of existence.
The Susan G. Komen Bahamas Race for the Cure 5K is scheduled to take place on January 19, 2019.
Breast cancer data suggests that there are 300-500 new cases of breast cancer each year, making events like Komen Bahamas necessary for not only raising awareness but money towards the fight.
The celebratory event attracts individuals from civic organizations, corporate groups, churches and schools to name a few.
The highlight event is the Survivor Ceremony, which features some of the hottest entertainers in The Bahamas, testimonials from survivors and lots of raffles.
One hundred percent of the net proceeds remain in The Bahamas. The funds are used to support four local NGOs: the Cancer Society of The Bahamas, the Cancer Society of Grand Bahama, the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation and the Sister Sister Breast Cancer Support Group.
Susan G. Komen is the world's largest breast cancer organization, funding more breast cancer research than any other nonprofit while providing real-time help to those facing the disease. Since its founding in 1982, Komen has funded more than $889 million in research and provided $1.95 billion in funding to screening, education, treatment and psychosocial support programs serving millions of people in more than 30 countries worldwide. Komen was founded by Nancy G. Brinker, who promised her sister, Susan G. Komen, that she would end the disease that claimed Suzy's life.
