Komen Louisville Race for the Cure Charity Profile
The Louisville Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® is dedicated to combating breast cancer at every front. Up to 75 percent of the Affiliate’s net income goes toward funding grants to local hospitals and community organizations that provide breast health education and breast cancer screening and treatment programs for medically underserved women. The remaining net income (a minimum of 25 percent) supports the national Komen Grants Program, which funds groundbreaking breast cancer research, meritorious awards and educational and scientific programs around the world.
The Komen Louisville Affiliate’s services area encompasses a 15-county area including Jefferson, Bullitt, Hardin, Oldham, Shelby, Spencer, Breckinridge, Meade, Nelson, Grayson, Larue counties in Kentucky and Floyd, Scott, Harrison and Clark counties in Indiana. Thanks to the thousands of people who participant in the Susan G. Komen Louisville Race for the Cure® and other Affiliate events each year, dedicated corporate partners and generous donors, Komen Louisville is playing a vital role in fighting breast cancer in our community
