Susan G. Komen Northwest Ohio said the popular 5K runs and fitness walks raise funds for breast cancer research, care, community and action.

TOLEDO, Ohio – The Susan G. Komen Toledo and Findlay Races for the Cure will be held in person in September 2021.

This was announced by Susan G. Komen Northwest Ohio on Wednesday.

The 9th annual Findlay Race will take place on Saturday, September 25th, on the Blanchard Valley Health System campus.

The 28th annual Toledo Race takes place one day later, on Sunday, September 26th, in downtown Toledo.

In 2020, the races had to be held virtually due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The organizers are happy that the community is coming together again this year.

“At Komen, in northwest Ohio, we are so happy to hear these stories from their survivors and their families and loved ones. And every single breast cancer journey is different, ”said Gretchen Awad, Susan G. Komen’s Community Relations and Development Director of Northwest Ohio. “And we learn from each and every one of our community members. That is why it is so important that they meet in person and are able to gather in person and share their stories with one another. “
