The 16th Annual Komen Inland Empire Race for the Cure® was nothing short of Spectacular! The event was as amazing as ever, with over 8,579 participants showing up to support the Komen Inland Empire Race for the Cure and helping to achieve the promise to end breast cancer forever!
The day was filled with love and support for our community as participants gathered to honor those they have lost and celebrate the Survivors. It was Your Race, Your Reason and you made an impact on many lives locally.
We were honored to have breast cancer thriver Olivia Newton John, join us this year along with her Southwest Healthcare Team, her appearance and Raising of the Roses was an inspiration and delight for all.
On behalf of all of us from Komen Inland Empire, we would like to take this time to thank our teams and participants for fundraising on our community’s behalf and taking the time to share your day with us. Thank you to our amazing Sponsors that make the race possible. Thank you to our dedicated Race Committee, Volunteers, our wonderful Staff and Board of Directors. Without all of you we could not have had such a successful Race season !
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!!
