Susan G. Komen 2021 Toledo and Findlay Race for the Cure events will be hosted in-person

Susan G. Komen invites the Northwest Ohio community, both in-person and virtually, to join the fight against breast cancer at the Race for the Cure® 5K and Walk events in Findlay on Saturday, Sept. 25, 2021 and in Toledo on Sunday, Sept. 26, 2021. 

These events, in-person this year after Covid restrictions forced a virtual-only event in 2020, exist for a serious reason: the Findlay and Toledo Race for the Cure events provide year-round funding for women and men who need breast cancer screenings, breast cancer treatments, childcare and transportation for patients, breast health education, advocacy, and so much more. 

Those who register and donate to the Race also help to energize the best breast cancer research aimed at finding the cures for breast cancer.
