I AM THE CURE
I AM THE CURE.®
I AM THE CURE is a breast health program from Susan G. Komen 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 lasting “Curemitment” to their breast health.
On Race Day
On Race Day, you can visit our interactive I AM THE CURE booth to learn more about breast self-awareness and how to make a Curemitment. 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 THE CURE shirts; they’ll be sharing the message of early detection, distributing Curemitment Cards, and I AM THE CURE stickers. All throughout the Race, you’ll hear our ‘Cure Leaders’ cheering on Race participants and reminding everyone that we all have the power to be part of the cure!
This year, the I AM THE CURE program is asking participants to make a Curemitment – a commitment, a goal, a personal promise – to take one or more action steps that may reduce their breast cancer risk. These action steps include: know your risk, get screened, know what’s normal for you, and make healthy-lifestyle choices.
Curemitments can be made on-site or online:
- On Race day, Race participants can go to the I AM THE CURE booth and write a Curemitment on a water bottle, which becomes their gift for participating;
- Participants can visit iamthecure.org and click on the “Make a Curemitment” button and follow the prompts.
- Once you’ve made your Curemitment, go online to ‘declare and share’ what you will be doing this year to be proactive about your breast health.
