Written by Healthy Living News. Posted in Our Community

Susan G. Komen Northwest Ohio® takes the health and safety of breast cancer patients and our supporters, volunteers, and staff very seriously. After careful consideration of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, Komen Northwest Ohio leadership remains optimistic that the 2020 Race for the Cure events will take place as scheduled on Saturday, September 26 in Findlay and on Sunday, September 27 in Toledo. We will continue to consult with national and local health experts throughout the coming months and provide updates if changes arise.

Those interested in registering for the Toledo or Findlay Races may do so at komennwohio.org/race or by calling 419-724-2873. Early special registration remains at $25 for all adults and $15 for youth (ages 3 to 18), and the first 200 people to register will receive free T-shirt shipping.

We would like to extend heartfelt gratitude to all the medical professionals, first responders, and other essential workers throughout Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan who have been working diligently to combat COVID-19. Our hearts and thoughts go out to all who have been affected by this ongoing crisis. We would also like to thank our Komen Northwest Ohio family for their patience and commitment to the fight against breast cancer as we respond to this evolving situation together.

Komen Northwest Ohio continues to help women and men battling breast cancer in our 24-county service area, and we are putting plans in place to ensure funds are raised to support the most vulnerable among us as they battle breast cancer.
