The Komen Race is unique in that 100 percent of the net proceeds are allocated to Komen’s mission—up to 75 percent remains here in northern New Jersey to help fund local community programs that offer breast cancer screening, breast health/breast cancer education, patient navigation, and treatment support to underserved women and men in the Affiliate’s 9-county service region. The remaining 25 percent is directed to national research programs aimed at finding new and better treatment options, and ultimately, the causes and cures to eradicate breast cancer forever.
