Walkathons, races, bikeathons, etc., are popular local events for raising funds to support breast cancer research. They were popularized in the 1990s by Susan G. Komen’s foundation, and the most well known such series of events remains the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure®
There's a lot of fund-raising events for Breast Cancer. Susan G. Komen's sister lives here in Dallas and I remember the bank I worked for at the time was a big sponsor of the SGK walk/run Race for the Cure. I participated for many years. It's a large event in Dallas, and I'm sure in cities all across the country. Love this presentation!
