“Each year, the Komen Wilmington Race for the Cure® continues to create an atmosphere of inspiration and hope for everyone touched by breast cancer,” said Pam Kohl, Komen NCTC Executive Director. “Watching survivors celebrate their years of survivorship and cross the finish line in triumph makes a lasting impression. This year’s partnership with the Quintiles Wrightsville Beach Marathon enables us to reach a larger audience and offer support to more breast cancer patients.”

The Passing the Promise Grant was developed in memory of Komen Triangle Race for the Cure® founder Jeanne Peck and her vision of making the Race an event that embraces all survivors and co-survivors. Peck believed in the power of the Race. She wanted all survivors to experience the inspirational Race and Survivor Celebration—regardless of their ability to pay registration fees or travel expenses.
