|LOOK AROUND. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Globally, last year more than 1.6 million women were diagnosed. That's one every 19 seconds. Every 74 seconds a woman dies of breast cancer. We won't rest until breast cancer is a history lesson, not a current event. HELP US TAKE ACTION. Fundraising is essential to find the cures for this disease that touches so many of us. Come join us as a Komen Detroit Race for the Cure fundraiser and become one of our Friends for the Cure®.
How is the money spent? 75% of the net income from our Race stays in Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties to fund breast cancer screening, treatment support and education programs; the remaining 25% supports the Komen Award and Research Grant Program, which funds groundbreaking breast cancer research, meritorious awards and educational, scientific and community outreach programs around the world.
