End of Summer Fundraising Events

While some view August as a sign of summer’s inevitable end, at Komen Puget Sound we’re looking toward the end of the season with determination and excitement. We’re laser-focused on our goal to cut breast cancer deaths by half in the United States by 2026 by funding research that targets the most aggressive breast cancers and improving breast health access for every woman in our local communities.

How do we raise funds to meet our mission? Through generous individual and corporate contributions as well as through our own fundraising events like Race for the Cure. We also depend on third-party fundraising events, hosted by local partners and groups who want to support our work.

Whether you’re up for an evening at the ballpark or a day on the water, these upcoming end-of-summer fundraisers offer fun and meaningful ways to support Komen Puget Sound.

A special fundraiser at Safeco Field, Steals for the Cure is a partnership between Premera Blue Cross and the Mariners benefiting Komen Puget Sound. Help raise money and receive a pink Mariners hat when you purchase your ticket through this special offer.

Standup for the Cure

Saturday, August 25
Standup for the Cure is a unique, fun, family-friendly stand-up paddling event benefiting Komen Puget Sound. The event will be held at Lake Sammamish State Park and includes paddling lessons, yoga classes, friendly races and so much more.

Row for the Cure

Sunday, September 16
One thousand rowers will converge on Seattle’s Lake Union with a single goal to save lives. Row for the Cure partners with Komen Puget Sound to help fund breast health services, education, and awareness.

We’re excited about these third-party fundraisers and hope you’ll join us in force to fuel our mission to create more breast cancer survivors. Want to learn about other upcoming community events? Visit our events calendar.
