Pre-registration is now closed, but late registration times and locations can be found via the link below.  Join the Kalamazoo Area Runners (KAR) Team at the Susan G. Komen Foundation Race for the Cure!!! Many of us have been touched by breast cancer in some way, whether personally, or through a friend or family member.  Please consider running the event as part of the Kalamazoo Area Runners (KAR) team.  This year’s event will be held Sunday, May 17, 2015 from 11:30am – 3:00pm (run/walk events begin at 2:10pm) at the Arcadia Creek Festival Place in downtown Kalamazoo.

Each year, the Kalamazoo Area Runners organizes a fundraising team to participate in the event and raise support for the Susan G. Komen Foundation.  In addition, the event counts towards our 2015 Club Championship Series and participates in our Race Discount Program.

Up to 75% of net funds generated by the affiliate through events such as Race for the Cure stay local and are used to fund breast cancer community grants in areas such as education, screening and treatment in the eight counties of Southwest Michigan, Southwest Michigan counties include: Allegan, Berrien, Branch, Calhoun, Cass, Kalamazoo, St. Joesph, and Van Buren.   A minimum of 25% of net funds goes directly to fund national breast cancer research studies and fellowship grants.

We encourage you to join the Kalamazoo Area Runners (KAR) team and support this important cause by running, walking or donating on our behalf.   Our goal is to raise a minimum $1000 and recruit a minimum of 25 team members.  Kalamazoo Area Runners (KAR) technical shirts will be given to team members who sign up (while supplies last).
