Race For the Cure

Join the fight against breast cancer. Save Lives in Northwest Ohio at theSusan G. Komen Northwest Ohio Race for the Cure® events in Findlay and Toledo

While these events are wonderful celebrations full of fun, hope, and fitness, they exist for a serious reason. The Findlay and Toledo Race for the Cure events provide year-round funding for women and men in our 24-county service area who need breast cancer screenings, breast cancer treatments, childcare and transportation for patients, breast health education, advocacy, and so much more.
