Susan G. Komen St. Louis Race for the Cure® participants are the foot soldiers in the fight to end breast cancer. Help strengthen the fight by taking your participation one step further with fundraising.
If you are registered for the Race, you automatically received your own fundraising web page. You can even personalize it. Get started by logging into the Participant Center in the upper right hand corner of the Komen St. Louis Race website.
Although registration fees are not tax-deductible, donations are! Here are a few easy fundraising ideas to get you started:
Make a flyer encouraging colleagues to empty out their pockets or bring in loose change from the house to be donated. You can put out the collection jar a few times a week. Every penny counts.
Organize a book exchange. Ask for donations for any books your customers “purchase.” Swap books for a great cause.
Serve pancakes with a purpose. Host a pancake breakfast at work for your colleagues or at home for your neighbors, friends and family. Ask for donations from those who participate.
Children can set up a good-ol’ lemonade stand for donations too.
Send an email blast. Encourage friends, family and colleagues to donate just $17 each in honor of the 17th Annual Susan G. Komen St. Louis Race for the Cure. Donations will be just a click away.

Your Race registration fee makes a difference, and additional fundraising helps make a larger impact against the disease. Your extra fundraising efforts allow Komen St. Louis to provide even more funding for local, life-saving breast cancer screening, breast health education, patient support services and breast cancer research.
We encourage you to have FUN fundraising for Komen St. Louis. Fundraising more than just the Race registration fee fuels the fight against breast cancer.
If every Komen St. Louis Race participant raised $100, the local fight against breast cancer could be $3 million strong.
Let’s make it happen. Let’s all take one step closer to the end of breast cancer.
