2020 Passing the Promise Race Registration and Transportation Grant

2020 Triangle Race for the Cure® – September 12, 2020

This Passing the Promise Grant opportunity was created in memory of Jeanne Peck, founder of the Triangle Race for the Cure®.  Jeanne had a vision of making the Race an event that embraced all breast cancer survivors, thrivers and co-survivors in our Affiliate Service Area regardless of how near or far they lived from the Race or their ability to pay the registration fees.

The Triangle Race for the Cure® raises funds and awareness in the fight against breast cancer, celebrates breast cancer survivors and thrivers (those living with metastatic breast cancer), and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease. Breast cancer knows no boundaries — not age, gender, socio-economic status or geographic location.

Program Goal:  Provide an opportunity for breast cancer survivors, thrivers and their supporters who reside in the communities located in our Affiliate Service Area to attend and participate in the 2020 Triangle Race for the Cure on Saturday, September 12th, at the Frontier in Research Triangle Park, NC.
