The Komen Detroit Race for the Cure® is the largest race in Michigan and is one of more than 100 Komen Foundation 5K races in a series that attracts over one million participants annually. Its purpose is to educate and build positive awareness about breast cancer and the importance of good breast health. Race supporters are encouraged to raise funds to bring us closer to “a world without breast cancer.” The event celebrates those who have survived the disease and takes time to remember those who have not. The Race raises significant funds for local screening, treatment, and education programs and for research grants awarded throughout the nation by Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Join the Wayne Cares Race for the Cure Team! Wayne State University is once again participating in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure under one umbrella – Wayne Cares.
