2017 Race for the Cure Updates
Thanks to everyone who joined us at the Pink Parade and Celebration of Hope!
If you couldn’t join us on May 20, you can pick up your Race materials at our office on either Tuesday, May 23 or Wednesday, May 24 from 9 am until 7 pm. Our office is located at 3500 DePauw Blvd, Pyramid Two, 7th Floor. Due to storage space, we can only fulfill materials during these times while supplies last.
If neither of these options work for you, you can request to have your t-shirts and survivor medals mailed to you after May 24 for an additional $5 shipping and handling donation, while supplies last. Please contact us if you want this option.
Help close the fundraising gap and fuel our mission
This year’s Race for the Cure did not happen, yet breast cancer comes rain or shine. The Race is Komen Central Indiana’s largest fundraiser of the year and meeting our goal is critical to funding breast cancer research and local services for Hoosiers in need. Since the Race was canceled, we need your help more than ever. Please support our mission to meet the most critical needs of our communities and invest in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer.
Unfortunately, due to the weather cancellation, we are still about $200,000 short of our fundraising goal for the event. This gap will severely impact our ability to fund breast cancer research and provide education, access to care and patient navigation in central Indiana.
Donate now so we can continue to fund our mission and achieve our bold goal to reduce the current number of breast cancer deaths in the U.S. by 50% by the year 2026.
You can support our mission by registering for the Race through Sunday, May 21. Your registration will get us one step closer to meeting our fundraising goal, and you will also receive a Race t-shirt and other materials, so you can proudly show your support for the fight against breast cancer all year.
If you have registered for the Race or are supporting a Race team, it is important to note that you can continue to raise funds through May 30. Visit your fundraising center to fundraise and share the need with your network. You can also drop off donations at the Komen Central Indiana office this month during normal business hours (Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm).
Next Year’s Race
We hope the sun will be shining for the 2018 Komen Central Indiana Race for the Cure on Saturday, April 28, 2018. Mark your calendar to join us next year!
