Komen Race for the Cure held last week

Survivors and caregivers leave messages of hope, love gratitude and encouragement on the wall of courage.


One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure raises money for breast cancer research, breast cancer screenings, treatment and education.

Saturday, more than 25,000 people braved the cold and early morning sprinkles to participate in the 2012 Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in the Maryland Farms area of Brentwood. This year’s event brought in a record-breaking $500,000 in corporate sponsorship and more than $1 million in cash. Donations are still being accepted at the Komen website.

Seventy-five percent of the funds raised here in the Greater Nashville area supports local breast health programs for women and men in need and treatment services to underserved women in the community through grants to organizations like the American Cancer Society, St. Thomas, Nashville General Hospital, the YMCA and Vanderbilt Center for Health Services.

The remaining 25 percent goes to the Komen Global Research Fund to find a cure. More than $4 million in Komen research grants are currently active at Vanderbilt.
