Join the Kalamazoo Area Runners (KAR) Team at the Susan G. Komen Foundation Southwest Michigan 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 21, 2017 at 2:00pm at the Gilmore Car Museum, Hickory Corners, MI. Click here for more information on the 2017 Susan G. Komen Foundation Race for the Cure.

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 2017 Club Championship Series and participates in our Race Discount Program.

The Komen Race for the Cure is a unique event, designed and implemented to promote positive awareness, education and early detection of breast cancer. It has proven to be an enormously effective way to reach many women and men with the message that breast cancer is not necessarily fatal if mammography and breast self-awareness become routine. As well as being a road race for runners, the Komen Race for the Cure is an emotionally charged event that attracts many first timers and recreational runners. The Komen Race for the Cure is an opportunity for thousands of women, men and their families, running or walking, to spread the breast cancer message within their communities.

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. Our NEW Kalamazoo Area Runners (KAR) technical shirts will be given to the first 25 team members who sign up.
