We are pressing forward with a 30th Annual Komen Greater NYC Race for the Cure that will surprise and delight all — a live-streaming, 30-hour extravaganza on Race Day and a personalized Journey to 30 experience over the 30 days following the Race Day commencement!
The 2020 Race for the Cure Extravaganza will feature messages, personal inspirations, photos, videos, and race memories from our community members. With the community's help, this re-imagined digital event will be the powerful celebration that we all love and look forward to.
The 30-Hour Virtual Race Day Celebration
This fast-paced, multi-location 30-hour virtual event will highlight everything that makes Race Day so special, even as we find ourselves together apart. The digital, live-streaming event affords sponsors, corporate teams, and community teams dedicated time slots to highlight their unique relationship with the Komen Community. Featured live events will include opening and closing ceremonies, a Kids for the Cure celebration, a virtual Survivor/Thriver Ceremony and Celebration of Hope, sponsored start and finish lines with photos, as well as live and pre-recorded celebrity videos.
The Journey to 30
This vibrant, multi-layered, 30-day engagement and fundraising challenge is designed to inspire and connect members across the Komen Community. The Journey to 30 serves as the shared community experience for our 30th Annual Race for the Cure — bringing us together in common cause, much the same as walking the course has done for three decades. Whether participants choose to focus on fitness, cooking, or just dedicate day to day activities, they will find opportunities to engage and share their commitment to the cause. This is sure to be a vibrant, exciting multi-dimensional program with new sponsor opportunities throughout the entire 30 days of programming.
Komen is on a mission: No one should die from breast cancer. Join an army of survivors, thrivers, family, and friends to fund local breast health programs and cutting-edge research to find the cures for breast cancer.
In Komen NYC's 30 years, we've had over 400,000 people race towards one shared goal... no one should die from breast cancer. New Yorkers have raised over $80 million to fund local programs to help thousands of women, men, and their families, and to fund national research to find the cures.
We are not loosing sight of that goal this year! Breast cancer doesn't stop for a global pandemic and neither will Race. It is 2020, we have the technology to rebuilt it. Better... stronger... faster!
