This race is locally presented by the Duke Cancer Institute and has a goal of raising 1 million dollars so that the organization can keep providing our local community with the resources they need to survive breast cancer and get the best treatment possible. 100& of the net proceeds are allocated to this mission. 75 percent of the net funds raised are donated to vital local breast health services, and the remaining 25 percent is dedicated to national research to find the cures. This year alone it is estimated that among U.S. women there will be 246,660 new cases of invasive breast cancer and 40,450 breast cancer deaths. Any support through registration and donations will help the local affiliate to reach their goal and help the men and women who greatly need their help in this community.
