The Federation team is sponsored by Janet Lang; co-chairs are Sandy Capin-Kauffman and CHAI Circle: Cancer, Healing and Inspiration for Women in the Jewish Community.

Seventy-five percent of net proceeds from the race go to research, education, screening and treatment programs in Southern Arizona, with the remaining 25 percent going to national research and grants.

This year, the Susan G. Komen Foundation is sponsoring a brief survey to help determine local knowledge of access to, awareness of, education about and treatment for breast health care, which will help the foundation decide where monies are needed most.
