How does a 5K Race/1 Mile Fun Walk make a huge impact on the global movement to end breast cancer forever? Through the fundraising efforts of every participant!
You don’t need to be a fundraising expert to be successful at it – you just need the desire to stand up to breast cancer and make a difference. Thanks to people like you, the Komen Greater Kansas City Affiliate is able to fund $959,814 for education, screening and treatment services in our 17-county service area - A new record for our affiliate. This year we’re aiming even higher! If every Race participant raised an average of $218 over the registration fee ($218 is the cost of a clinical breast exam and digital mammogram), the Komen Greater Kansas City Affiliate would raise an additional $4 million. Together, we can save lives! Will YOU go the extra mile?
