We believe that our multi-faceted approach is the best and most cost-effective way to make progress toward the cures.
Since its inception in 1990, funds raised from the Komen Washington, D.C. Race for the Cure have provided more than $35 million for more than 300 community grants to local programs in the National Capital Region, aimed at low-income, minority and uninsured women in areas where breast cancer rates are the highest. An additional $30 million has funded 120 research grants to scientific researchers in the National Capital Region, including Georgetown University, The Institute of Medicine, Howard University and The George Washington University, among others. In 2014, Komen is funding 22 active grants for community education and treatment centers helping to provide breast health services, treatment assistance and patient support services in the National Capital Region – which includes northern Virginia, the District and Prince George’s and Montgomery counties in Maryland.
