Komen for the Cure® and the RE/MAX Sponsorship
The Purpose of Komen for the Cure®
After witnessing her sister’s pain, suffering and strength through her struggle with breast cancer, Nancy Goodman Brinker founded the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation in 1982. The foundation was named after Nancy’s late sister and made a promise to raise funds for the research and prevention of breast cancer.
Today, Komen for the Cure® is the world’s largest private funder of breast cancer research and community outreach programs. Komen leads the fight to eradicate breast cancer forever by funding research, education, screening and treatment projects in communities around the world.
With its corporate sponsors, the organization hopes to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures.
How RE/MAX Helps the Cause
RE/MAX joined Komen for the Cure® in 2002 to support the millions of survivors, activists, friends and families who join together to celebrate victories and advancements. With the help of corporate sponsors such as RE/MAX, the Komen Foundation has raised nearly $1 billion to help end breast cancer forever.
RE/MAX is proud to co-sponsor the National Series Breast Cancer Survivor Recognition Program at Komen Race for the Cure® events across North America.
In 2007, RE/MAX International initiated a fundraising effort called Sold for the Cure™. The program allows RE/MAX Associates to make a voluntary contribution to their local Komen Affiliate for each closed transaction.
