The 23rd Annual Susan G. Komen Triangle Race for the Cure, presented locally by Duke Cancer Institute, will take place on Saturday, May 4, at The Frontier in Research Triangle Park (RTP).
The Race attracts thousands of participants, many of whom are survivors and individuals living with metastatic breast cancer. The annual event features a 5k run/walk and an inspiring Survivor/Thriver Celebration that honors participants who have battled breast cancer, are battling breast cancer or are "forever fighters." HIghlights also include a Tailgate Zone with food trucks, a beer-tasting garden, and fun-filled activities for all ages.
This is the 18th year Duke Cancer Institute has partnered to serve as local presenting sponsor and the fourth year The Research Triangle Foundation will host the Triangle Race for the Cure. The annual race raises funds for the breast cancer research, including research at Duke.
Faculty leading Duke Cancer Institute teams this year include: P. Kelly Marcom, MD; Duke Cancer Center Durham; Donald McDonnell, PhD, Duke Cancer Center Durham; and Stacy Telloni, MD, PhD, Duke Women's Cancer Care Raleigh. McDonnell is a Komen Scholar and member of Komen's local chapter's board of trustees.
