CBS2/KCAL9 is the proud media presenting sponsor of the 17th Annual Susan G. Komen Los Angeles County Race for the Cure®. The 5K Walk/Run, 10K Double Down and Kids Fun Run will take place Saturday, March 23, at Dodger Stadium.

Join the CBS2/KCAL9 Team, as we walk to raise funds for breast cancer research, treatment and support programs.

Breast Cancer: Get the Facts

  • An estimated 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
  • In the U.S., one woman will die of breast cancer every 13 minutes.
  • In Los Angeles County, approximately 5,000 new cases of breast cancer are diagnosed each year.

The Race is the Reason we’re able to make a difference! Participating in the LA County Race helps support the health of our Los Angeles County community. Susan G. Komen for the Cure is the only organization that dedicates 75% of net proceeds to the community in which it was raised.  The remaining 25% of the net funds raised support Komen’s National Research Program, which is regarded as the most innovative and responsive grant program in breast cancer research.

Join Our Team on Race Day

Online registration closed on March 22, but you can still register in person on Saturday morning to join CBS2/KCAL9 in supporting this important cause. You can also click here to donate.
