I AM THE CURE.® is a breast health program from the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® that motivates people to take action steps that may reduce their risk of breast cancer. It speaks to the importance of early detection and provides simple, action-oriented steps that Race participants can take home and put into action. More than 1.5 million Komen Race for the Cure participants make I AM THE CURE.®their rallying cry on Race day.
On Race Day, you can visit our interactive I AM THE CURE.® booth to learn more about breast self-awareness. You can spin the wheel for prizes and ‘take-home’ educational information. You’ll also see our Rovers in the bright pink and green I AM THE CURE.® shirts; they’ll be sharing the message of early detection and will reward you for your participation. All throughout the Race, you’ll hear our ‘Cure Leaders’ cheering on Race participants and reminding everyone that we all have the power to be part of the cure!
The four key messages we want Race participants to remember are:
The I AM THE CURE.® program is a visual, engaging and powerful way for us to reach every Race participant with the important messages about proactive breast health. We hope you’ll be empowered to share this knowledge with friends and family – encouraging them to commit to positive breast health practices as well
