Susan G. Komen Oregon & SW Washington Race for the Cure® has been providing funding for programs to increase breast health education, screening, treatment and support since 1991. Every week, 63 women and men are diagnosed with breast cancer, and 11 will die. Komen conducts a needs assessment within the 40-county service area every four years to identify the status of breast health and services. Funding from Komen addresses needs and disparities identified in underserved communities.
Susan G. Komen is the global leader of the breast cancer movement. The Komen Eugene Race for the Cure sponsorship provides many corporate supporters an opportunity to make a positive impact on the fight against breast cancer – and involve employees and consumers in the cause.
"Sponsoring Race for the Cure isn't just a good business decision. We support Komen because it's a cause that our employees and customers believe in."
-Melinda Merrill, Director of Public Affairs, Fred Meyer Stores
"We sponsor Race for the Cure because of Komen's continued support given to the women of our community. Research and funding for women in need are the hallmarks of Komen's commitment and a cause that OIC fully believes in."
-Cathy Chicola M.D., Oregon Imaging Centers
