New for the 2014 Susan G. Komen Foundation Race for the Cure, Kalamazoo Area Runners will host an onsite Team Tailgate Tent!!!  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 team.  Kalamazoo Area Runners is excited to once again be a part of the 2014 Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.  This year’s event will be held Saturday, May 17, 2014 from 7:30am – 12:00 noon (run/walk events begin at 10:00am) 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 2014 Club Championship Series and participates in our Race Discount Program.

At least 75% of net funds raised 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.   The remaining 25% of net funds goes directly to fund national breast cancer research studies and fellowship grants.

We encourage you to join Team Kalamazoo Area Runners and support this important cause by running, walking or donating with or on behalf of us.  Our goal is to raise a minimum $1000 and recruit a minimum of 25 team members.  Kalamazoo Area Runners shirts will be provided to the first 25 team members.
