Komen Mid-Michigan Race for the Cure®

Discounted Registration until February 1st 

We hope that you will join us for on April 17th at the State Capitol for the Komen Mid-Michigan Race for the Cure®  – a fun filled day honoring breast cancer survivors and all who support them!  Register before February 1st to take advantage of our discounted registration fees. 

 Race day is truly celebrations of life and hope.  At the heart of our work are the women, men and families who have been touched by a breast cancer diagnosis and Race day is a time when we come together to celebrate their strength and courage. 

 Race for the cure is an unforgettable and rewarding experience and the dollars we raise makes an unparallel IMPACT in so many lives, right here in Mid-Michigan!

 It is because of the efforts of our Race participants that we have grown from 1,700 participants raising $125,000 in 2003, to more than 6,700 registered participants raising nearly $400,000 in 2010.  

 The success of our Race has allowed us to provide crucial funding to local nonprofits to provide uninsured and underinsured women with access to screening, education and survivorship programs.  To date, the Mid-Michigan Affiliate has invested over 2.5 million in our mission.  This would not have been possible without the fundraising efforts of every participant.

 Let’s keep this celebration of hope growing! Remember, YOU are the CURE; register today to walk or run, and join us in the fight against breast cancer.

Breast Self-Awareness

With New Year’s Resolutions still fresh on your to-do list, please remember to place Breast Self-Awareness on your list for 2011, too.

It takes just four easy steps to learn more about Breast Self-Awareness.

1.)    Know your risk – Talk to your family about your family health history and talk to your doctor about your personal risk of breast cancer.
2.)    Get screened – Ask your doctor which screening tests are right for you, have a mammogram every year starting at age 40 and have a clinical breast exam at least every 3 years starting at 20 and every year starting at 40.
3.)    Know what is normal for you – See your health care provider right away if you notice any breast changes.
4.)    Make healthy lifestyle choices – maintain a healthy weight, add exercise to your routine and limit alcohol intake.
