How the Race Funds are Used:
Seventy-five percent of the net income from the Komen Central Texas Race stays in the local community to fund breast health education and breast cancer screening and diagnostic projects. The remaining twenty-five percent helps fund groundbreaking breast cancer research.
The Race is the largest fundraising event for local breast cancer screening, treatment, education and research in the Central Texas Area. Our service area includes Bell, Bosque, Coryell, Falls, McLennan and Milam counties. Komen Central Texas recently invested $88,611 into our community for these vital services.
We hope that you will join us and encourage your friends, family and co-workers to register as well. This is a great time to rally behind a breast cancer patient and help support someone who has battled the disease.
All donations on your behalf received by October 20, 2014 will be credited to your fundraising total.
Cash or checks
Checks can be mailed to our office. Cash or checks can be dropped off at the registration tent on Race day, or turned in at the office. Regardless, a Race Donation Form must be included with any cash or check donations so we know to which participant or team to credit the donation.
Mailed Race donations must be received by October 20, 2014 for donations to be credited toward your fundraising goal. Any forms received after that date will be counted as a general donation to the Central Texas Affiliate.

All food, drink, gifts have been donated to the Survivors, and we want to make sure all of our Survivors have the opportunity to enjoy this love fest heaped on them! Please also make sure to note the Survivor Ceremony has changed to after the Race instead of before.
The Garden of Promise was named in memory and in honor of the survivors we have lost or watched fight over the years, as a way to remember the impact they had on each of us. The garden was not only established as a way to honor or remember those who have lost their battle with breast cancer, but as a way to thank a Co-Survivor who has supported you, or to say "thank you" to your team members for joining you in the Race.
The pink plastic flowers come with a tribute sticker that has in honor or in memory of and a place to write in their name. They are prominently displayed in the Garden of Promise at the Race site and may be gathered and taken home after the Race. Each flower costs $10. Order online or during registration. The deadline to order is September 18th. If you were unable to do this during your registration you can purchase one now by clicking here.
