Fundraising FAQ

Q. Does the Komen Greater St. Louis Race for the Cure® require fundraising?
   A. You are not required to fundraise, but we do encourage all participants to fundraise above the registration fee to help fund more lifesaving, local breast health services and breast cancer research. Just imagine the impact: If every Komen Greater St. Louis Race participant raises just $100 in addition to the registration fee, we would bring in an additional $1.5 million to support local screening, education and patient navigation programs in our community!

Q. Does the money raised stay right here in our community?
   A. Yes! Seventy-five percent of the net income from the Komen Greater St. Louis Race stays right here in our community to fund vital breast health education, breast cancer screening and patient navigation programs. The remaining 25 percent supports Komen’s national research grants program.
