According to a news release, 100 percent of the race’s net proceeds go toward the Susan G. Komen Foundation’s goal, with 75 percent of that staying in South Florida to help pay for local breast-health education programs, treatment and screenings. The other 25 percent goes toward research through the Susan G. Komen Grants Program.
