BOISE - The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure will celebrate its 20th year in Boise on Saturday, May 12.
The annual event draws thousands of people to the City of Trees each year, raising millions of dollars for breast cancer research and treatment programs.
75 percent of net funds raised stay local to provide vital breast health services including, mammograms, diagnostics, patients assistance and education programs to those who are uninsured or underinsured living in Idaho and Montana.
To date, Komen Idaho Montana has invested over $7 million back into our local community for breast health programs.
In addition to raising money, the race also celebrates breast cancer survivors and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease.
