Join us at our 23rd annual Race for the Cure! Last year, more than 10,000 people came together in Omaha’s largest walk/run to celebrate and honor breast cancer survivors. Funds raised benefit women and men in Nebraska – your family, colleagues, neighbors and friends — with local education, screening and treatment support (75%) and national breast cancer research (25%).
Thank you to all of the donors, sponsors, volunteers and participants who continue to make this a memorable event that takes us a step further in our mission to end breast cancer.
