When: Sunday, September 9, 2018 @ 9AM

Hot Spot: Central Park, NYC

Deets: Susan G. Komen Greater NYC is on a mission: No one should die from breast cancer. Join an army of survivors, thrivers, family, and friends to fund cutting-edge research to find the cures and empower community-based programs providing critical breast cancer services for medically underserved women in our communities. Together, we are creating more survivors.

Breast cancer is hard. This is a walk in the park! 

In Komen NYC's 28 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 and their families, and fund national research to find the cures. 

Thank you for joining our army. 

Whether you're walking, running, rowing, volunteering, a Virtual Participant or a Kid for the Cure, thank you for kicking complacency to the curb. Your time, your donations, and your fundraising help us create more survivors.

Special Announcement! You won't want to miss THIS hot dog on September 9th!
Model, actor, travel blogger, fashion icon and social media influencer Tinkerbelle the dog will be the first Official Pup of Komen Greater NYC's Race for the Cure! Tinkerbelle only weighs 5 lbs., but her commitment to fighting breast cancer has a big bite! This international superstar does more than just sit pretty -- she's helping to take on breast cancer and of course, look fabulous while doing it. 

Tinkerbelle will be at the hottest shows for New York Fashion Week, but first she's joining the Komen community at the Start Line! Come meet the pooch that kissed Taylor Swift and help create more survivors at Race for the Cure on September 9th in Central Park.
