September 16th, 2018
The Komen Oregon and SW Washington Race for the Cure is a Running race in Portland, Oregon consisting of a 10K and 5K.
The Komen Oregon & SW Washington Affiliate was founded in 1991, when Lolly Champion first noticed the book The Race is Run One Step at a Time: My Personal Struggle and Every Woman's Guide to Taking Charge of Breast Cancer by Nancy Brinker. Reading the book lead to research on the non-profit then called The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation - an organization named after Brinker's sister who had battled and eventually died of breast cancer. Champion decided then to establish a Komen Affiliate in Portland and bring the organization's annual fundraiser - the Race for the Cure - to town.www.info-komen.org View Course Map
