The 2013 Susan G. Komen Iowa Affiliate Race for the Cure – Des Moines® is all about TEAMS! Our Race teams can change history—the history of breast cancer—by helping the Komen Iowa Affiliate Race for the Cure reach record-breaking levels of Race participation and fundraising. A Race for the Cure team is a group of 10 or more participants who join together for the Race season to have fun and raise funds to empower the breast cancer movement.
Team awards help drive the friendly competition that makes each year better than the last! Awards for largest teams will be based on registered participants by Tuesday, October 22.
**Awards for highest fundraising teams are calculated from donations received by Saturday, October 31st, 2015.**
- Teams are encouraged to continue fundraising after the Race has concluded on October 3. All team fundraising award winners for the 2015 Race for the Cure will be given their award after this time period has concluded, and they will be recognized on stage during the 2016 Race for the Cure! So even once the Race is over, there is still time to fundraise and make an impact!
