How to Apply for Funding

We are no longer accepting applications for Passing the Promise grants for the Triangle Race for the Cure® - Recipients will be announced soon.

About the Passing the Promise Grant:

Race for the Cure® raises funds and awareness for the fight against breast cancer, celebrates breast cancer survivorship, and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease. Breast cancer knows no boundaries — not age, gender, socio-economic status or geographic location.  This Passing the Promise Grant opportunity was developed in memory of Jeanne Peck, founder of the Komen Triangle Race for the Cure® in 1997, with the goal of bringing into existence her vision of making the Race an event that embraces all survivors and co-survivors, regardless of their county of residence or ability to pay registration fees.
