Susan G. Komen San Diego

RACE FOR THE CURE®

The Walk to End Breast Cancer
Sunday, November 4, 2018
8:00 a.m. | Balboa Park

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!

 

In San Diego, six women a day are diagnosed with breast cancer and unfortunately one woman a day passes away from this disease.

Early detection and effective treatment provide the best chance of survival from breast cancer.
And that’s what our work at Susan G. Komen San Diego is all about.

We are the only organization that studies San Diego County to identify the gaps in breast cancer care and the barriers to breast health access. Komen San Diego’s work is about removing barriers, improving the law, changing systems, and most importantly, elevating the women and men directly impacted by breast cancer.

When you walk, you make it possible for Komen San Diego to provide:

  • Free mammograms, biopsies, ultrasounds, care coordination, education and financial assistance for breast cancer patients’ most critical needs during treatment.
  • Komen San Diego also has a robust public policy and advocacy arm to assure healthcare access and equity.
  • Lastly, Susan G. Komen is the largest nonprofit funder of breast cancer research outside of the U.S. government. Much of that investment has been awarded to researchers in San Diego, and nearly 40 percent of our research investment is focused on metastatic disease.

 

We Live Here. We Walk Here. We Save Lives Here.

The 18th Annual Row
(Paddle, Kayak, SUP)
for the Cure
Saturday, October 13, 2018

 

SUP AND PRONE REGISTRATION NOW OPEN

For all other human-powered watercraft (rowers, kayakers, paddlers, etc.) please register at Regatta Central. Link coming soon!

The first Row for the Cure regatta was hosted by UC San Diego Women’s Crew in 2001 shortly after losing an alumna, Lori Ann Uptegrove, and a Triton family member, Joyce Snyder, to breast cancer. Over the years, UC San Diego Women’s Crew and Susan G. Komen San Diego have joined forces to expand this event to all human-powered watercraft. The event draws participants from various forms of watercraft including— rowing, canoeing, outrigger canoeing, dragon boats, kayaking and SUPing.

The event course takes place throughout Mission Bay, with the event expo located in North Ski Beach across from Crown Point Shores.

NEW THIS YEAR

  • Two separate courses— the original 4.5km is considered the “competitive course” and is open to all participants. The new beginner course will be open to SUP and Prone participants only.
  •  SUP rentals (for an additional fee and first come/first serve basis)

ENDING BREAST CANCER

All entry fees and donations benefit Susan G. Komen San Diego.
