How can I become a volunteer?
The success of the Komen SF Bay Area Race depends heavily on the support we receive from our volunteers in the months leading up to the Race and on Race Day. There are many ways you can get involved, for more information or to volunteer your time, please email us at info@komensf.org.

Fundraising FAQ

Does the Komen Race for the Cure® require fundraising?
You are not required to fundraise, but we do encourage all participants to fundraise above the entry fee. Just Imagine the IMPACT - If every Race participant raises just $100 in addition to their registration fee, we would bring in an additional $150,000-to support local screening, treatment and educational programs in our community!

Does the money raised stay right here in our community?
Yes! Up to seventy-five percent of the net income from the Race stays right here in our community to fund vital breast cancer health education and breast cancer screening and treatment programs. The remaining twenty-five percent supports Komen’s national research and training grants program

Where do I send donations?
If you are mailing contributions, please send them to our office at 1469 Pacific Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94109.
For donations on behalf of an individual participant or a team, please include that information with your check.

Is there a deadline for fundraising?
All donations on your behalf that are received by October 31, 2017 will be credited to your fundraising total.

What are some ways I can fundraise for my team/my individual goal?

To be considered an official team, you will need 10 or more registered members by the morning of the Race. You can easily form a team or join a team online! For more information, contact us at info@komensf.org
