About Susan G. Komen North Carolina Triangle to the Coast

The Komen North Carolina Triangle to the Coast (NCTC) Affiliate serves 29 counties in central and eastern North Carolina; holding two annual Race for the Cure events in Raleigh (June 13, 2015) and Wilmington (March 7, 2015). Since its first Race in 1997, nearly $15 million has been raised and used locally for breast cancer research, education, advocacy, health services and social programs. Seventy-five percent of the net proceeds generated by the Affiliate stay in the service area. In 2014, $738,000 was granted to provide a continuum of breast health services to underinsured and uninsured women from the Triangle to the Coast. The remaining 25 percent helped fund cutting-edge national breast cancer research to develop treatments and find a cure. Last year in the Triangle, $3.6 million in Komen national breast cancer research grants were given to Duke University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
