Susan G. Komen® Dallas County's vision is for every person in Dallas County to have access to breast health education and breast cancer screening, diagnostics and treatment.

We are the local source for funding breast cancer education, screening and treatment in Dallas County, serving thousands of women in 30 cities. Through events like the Komen Dallas Race for the Cure®- the original Race for the Cure,

We're fighting breast cancer today and tomorrow by investing funds raised to support vital local breast health services, and dedicating a portion of these funds to national research to find the cures. Since 1992, Komen Dallas County has invested more than $22 million into Dallas County via our annual community grants program.
