Goal in 2011 . . . to reach 8,000 participants! Forming TEAMS is the way to get there. This 5K Run and Walk has had emotional and economic impact in the advancement of breast cancer awareness, screening and treatment in West Virginia.

This event has helped to put over 1 million dollars back into 55 WV counties to ensure quality care for all. By building greater collaboration through community networking and providers, they are a leader in WV breast health. The 11th anniversary music starts early and inspiration carries through out. Join us!

Every Step Counts

Up to 75 percent of the funds raised at the Race remain here in the Komen West Virginia Affiliate to provide breast health research, diagnostics, screening, treatment, services and education for uninsured or underinsured women. The remaining 25 percent goes to fund national research to discover the causes of breast cancer and, ultimately, its cures.

A team can be made of ten or more family members, friends, coworkers, classmates or any group you may be a part of. Rally around someone you know who was just diagnosed, someone who has fought the battle, or someone who may have lost the battle. Run for future generations in hopes that breast cancer will one day be a thing of the past.

Run for their lives. Run for your life. Encourage team members to get creative with your team name and apparel for the Race. Encourage them to recruit additional members and solicit pledges to meet your team goal.
