Friends for the Cure ®
Race participants are encouraged to collect extra donations to help in the fight against breast cancer. Up to 75% of our net profits stays in the state of Minnesota for education, screening and treatment programs through grants to non-profits and government agencies with focus on the underinsured and underserved. The remaining 25% goes directly to the Susan G. Komen Grants Program to fund research.
Your registration fee gets you to the start line; your fundraising gets us all to the finish line—a world without breast cancer! Not only will you make an impact, you’ll be eligible to receive a reward for any individual fundraising of $100 or more, too! And, if you raise $500 or more on your individual fundraising page by August 1st, you’ll be recognized as a Pink Honor Roll member with a special reward and celebratory dinner the following spring. Raise over $1000 and get premium parking at the following year’s Race!
Our fundraising incentives have never been more exciting! Raise money on your individual fundraising page (as part of our Friends for the Cure® program) and you’ll be amazed at the reward you can win!
GRAND PRIZES: Two American Airlines certificates for 25,000 AAdvantage miles! At the Race Day Award Ceremony, one certificate will be awarded to the person submitting the most donations by 7:00 pm, Friday, July 7th. A second certificate will be awarded by a drawing from among all others submitting $250 or more.
Donations may be made online or by mail. They may be designated to sponsor a participant or made as a general donation. They also may be noted to honor someone surviving breast cancer or in memory of someone who has lost the battle. To show our appreciation, we have established an array of special thank you premiums based on the total of donations submitted by August 1st.
A downloadable form is available below on this page. We request complete addresses of any donors so we can send a thank you and tax receipt. The IRS requires receipts to anyone donating $250 or more. All donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
