Did you know that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in the United States in their lifetime? Susan G. Komen Kentucky believes this is unacceptable. That is why Susan G. Komen has a bold goal to reduce the current number of breast cancer deaths by 50% in the U.S. by 2026.


We invite you to join our fight against breast cancer by participating in this year's Lexington Race for the Cure on October 27, 2018.  For more than twenty years the Race for the Cure has been honored to be one of the select few 5k timed races in downtown Lexington. We are excited for our 1 Mile Family Walk and Survivor Trolley, that allows all family members to participate in this beautiful event. Come see what Pink Makes Possible!
