Susan G. Komen for the Cure SWFL Affiliate has granted Lymphedema Resources, Inc. thousands of dollars over nine years to assist uninsured/underserved breast cancer survivors who are suffering with lymphedema or who are at risk of developing lymphedema. This race is one of the ways that Komen raises money for these grants. 75% of all money raised stays here in southwest Florida. Please join our team in support of this effort.
We are a proud eleven-year Komen grantee – we have received over $225,000 in grants as a result of this Race. We have funded compression garments and lymphedema therapy for over 700 uninsured/underserved people in the five-county Komen service area.
