Susan G. Komen and Hope for the Cure
One of the most popular events that Komen is known for is Race for the Cure. The first race happened in 1983 in Dallas, Texas with 800 runners. It has since grown into multiple races and walks with millions of participants who annually lace up their shoes and show of their pink all in the name of finding a cure!
