Maryland's Komen Race For The Cure Hits $3 Million Goal

December 19, 2009

Maryland's leg of the annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, held Oct. 18 in Hunt Valley, reached its $3 million goal, the local affiliate announced this week. The final tally shows the event drew 29,000 participants, 2,000 survivors and 1,000 volunteers. More than 75 percent of the money raised stays in Maryland to finance local research programs and assist breast cancer patients. The remaining money goes to Susan G. Komen for the Cure headquarters in Dallas, where it assists in national research projects, many of which take place at Maryland's top medical institutions.
