For Survivors

You'll find an incredible community of survivors, thrivers, those currently in treatment, and co-survivors and caregivers at the Komen Charlotte Race for the Cure®. On Race morning, we all gather to support one another in an atmosphere of genuine camaraderie. It is their inspiring spirit that energizes us to BE BOLD, BE FEARLESS, and BE MORE in our commitment to be More Than Pink™ .
