The Komen St. Louis Affiliate’s mission is to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures. Komen St. Louis is dedicated to meeting the breast health needs of the women, men and families in its 17-county Missouri/Illinois service area. Through events like the Susan G. Komen St. Louis Race for the Cure® and other year-round fundraising opportunities, Komen St. Louis and its supporters have raised more than $26 million for the fight against breast cancer.

The remaining 25 percent goes toward groundbreaking breast cancer research programs.
