I Am Komen® is the mission engagement program of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® Series that motivates people to take action steps that may reduce their risk of breast cancer. It speaks to the importance of early detection and healthy living while encouraging everyone to make a personal commitment to their breast health. I Am Komen® is a “Declaration” to join the Komen community as an ambassador in the fight against breast cancer.
On Race Day, you can visit our interactive I Am Komen® booth to learn more about breast self-awareness and how to make a Declaration. You can spin the wheel for prizes and take home breast health education information. You’ll also see our Rovers in the bright green I Am Komen® shirts; they’ll be sharing the message of early detection, distributing EduCards and I Am Komen® stickers. All throughout the Race, you’ll see and hear our efforts to educate, empower, and engage our participants.
What is a Declaration? A Declaration is an emphatic statement, a promise or commitment to take one or more action steps that may reduce the risk of breast cancer. A Declaration is also a self-empowered choice to join the Komen community in doing whatever it takes to end breast cancer forever.
This year, we are asking participants to make a Declaration on-site (on Race Day) or online:
