Race, Row and Dine Out Reach Goals!

Ring the bell! You made it happen. Our three signature events during October: Race for the Cure, Row for the Cure and Dine Out for the Cure hit their fundraising goals! Together they brought in over one million dollars to fight breast cancer in San Diego!

Race for the Cure 

We are ecstatic to announce we have officially blown past our fundraising goal of $915,000 dollars! And it’s all thanks to your relentless fundraising, self-donations, commitment to our fight, and the pink wave of walkers who joined us in Balboa Park.

You are helping us ensure women and men in our neighborhoods get the support they need through every step of their breast cancer journey. Let’s take a moment to celebrate this victory. Thank you for sharing your laughs, hugs, tears and strength at the Race for the Cure.

Thank you to our 2018 Race for the Cure top individual fundraisers, teams and corporate teams! Together, we’re saving lives by finding research breakthroughs for breast cancer and ensuring all people receive the care they need right here in San Diego.
