As a Komen fundraiser, we know you give your time, passion, and dedication to giving back to your community. We want to show you how much we appreciate your efforts and accomplishments in going the extra mile to make the biggest impact possible in the fight against breast cancer. 




How does a 5K Race make a huge impact on the global movement to end breast cancer forever?  Through the fundraising efforts of every participant.

Fundraising for the 2017 Komen Iowa Race for the Cure will remain open until November 30, 2017.  After that date, anyone eligible for fundraising rewards (see below for more details!) will be notified with their award certificate and redepmtion information.  Keep the pink passion going from this weekend and help us reach our goal of raising more than $1 million this year!

Every dollar makes an impact – thank you for everything you do!

Please help us track your donations and thank your friends and family for their generous gifts by attaching the 2017 Komen Iowa Fundraising Form to your mailed donations.   Donations can be sent to:  Komen Iowa, PO Box 8468, Des Moines, Iowa, 50301.  Please do not mail cash.  



The top 100 fundraisers each year become members of the Pink Honor Roll. Each member of this exclusive club receives a commemorative t-shirt listing all of our fundraising superstars! Honorees are also invited to a special Pink Honor Roll tent on Race Day where they can share success stories and enjoy a complimentary breakfast. Plus, they will receive free admission to the 2017 Race!

As if fundraising for a great cause isn’t enough incentive, each of the top two individual fundraisers will win roundtrip air transportation on American Airlines or American Eagle to any destination in the contiguous US, courtesy of American Airlines, the exclusive airline partner for the Komen Race for the Cure series.   (Limit 1 ticket per household.)
