  • Susan G. Komen Hawaii Race For The Cure® - October 16, 2016

Back to the top

Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® Series is the world's largest and most successful education and fundraising event for breast cancer ever created.

The event raises significant funds and awareness for the breast cancer movement, celebrates breast cancer survivorship and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease.

This Race is unique in the fact that 100% of the net proceeds are allocated to our mission. 75 percent of the net income stays in our community to help fund local programs offering breast health education and breast cancer screening and treatment. The remaining 25 percent of the net income supports the Susan G. Komen® Grants Program.

We Race Because…


  • One in eight women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
  • Because every minute, somewhere in the world, someone dies from breast cancer.
  • And because, breast cancer knows no boundaries- be it age, gender, socio-economic status or geographic location.
  • We continue to Race because at the current rate, 13 million breast cancer deaths around the world will occur in the next 25 years.

But, when you participate and fundraise for the Race, we fight these statistics together. In 1980, the 5-year relative survival rate for women diagnosed with early stage breast cancer (cancer confined to the breast) was about 74 percent. Today, that number is 99 percent! Komen has played a critical role in every major advance in the fight against breast cancer - transforming how the world talks about and treats this disease and helping to turn millions of breast cancer patients into breast cancer survivors. This progress was made with your continued support and together we can reach our vision of a world without breast cancer.

Race Leadership

Every year for the past 20 years, a dedicated group of volunteers comes together to produce an event that has raised a total of $3.7 million for breast cancer programs right here in Hawaii. This group is known as the Race Committee and the event, of course, is the Komen Hawaii Race for the Cure.

Their leadership, dedication, and passion produce the Race that honors, educates, and raises critical funding for mammograms, treatment, and screening to combat breast cancer in Hawaii. Backed by the affiliate staff and board of directors, this team unites 7,000 supporters and breast cancer survivors to Race for the Cure.

About Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is a type of cancer where cells in the breast tissue divide and grow without normal control. Except for skin cancers, breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the U.S. Breast cancer knows no boundaries - be it age, gender, socio-economic status or geographic location. But there is hope. Thanks to heightened awareness, early detection, improved treatment methods and increased access to breast health services, people have a greater chance of survival than ever before.

Making sense of the ever-changing world of breast cancer can be very overwhelming though. The Understanding Breast Cancer section of is your one-stop resource for the latest information on breast cancer risk factors, early detection and screening, diagnosis, treatment and support. You can also find information on integrative and complementary therapies, life after treatment, quality of care and much more.

The Understanding Breast Cancer section was co-developed with Harvard Medical School faculty and Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women's Cancer Center staff.
