Most of us have been affected by breast cancer. Whether you are like me and have had friends or family lose the battle or have fought the disease yourself, the little pink ribbon is more than just cute to you – it stands for courage, strength and prevention.

The Evansville Tri-State Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® is dedicated to combating breast cancer at every front. According to the Centers for Disease control Indiana rates among the highest states in percentages of women who have developed the disease. Kentucky is within the second tier of high risk states.

Because of the high numbers associated with the disease in this area, it’s important that we as a community come together to raise both awareness for preventative measures and also funds for research and local resources to aid those who are fighting the battle and their families. The Race for the Cure® is the biggest area fundraiser that is held in honor of survivors, those with breast cancer, and those who have passed away from breast cancer. However, The Evansville Tri-State Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® also hosts a multitude of fundraising and awareness events throughout the summer – leading up to the event.


We at Townsquare Media are dedicated to spreading the word about prevention, these events and also details about race day.
