This Mother’s Day, the Philadelphia Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure invites everyone in the Delaware Valley and beyond to “Embrace the Honor and Empower the Promise” to end breast cancer at the annual Komen Philadelphia Race for the Cure.

The festivities take place at Eakins Oval at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. For the past 24 years, the Komen Philadelphia Race for the Cure has been more than simply a 5K run and 5K walk. It’s a Mother’s Day tradition, with families, co-workers and best friends of all ages gathering together in the movement to fight breast cancer.
