The annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, slated for 8 a.m. Sunday in Hunt Valley, is still behind its fundraising goal, but organizers with Komen Maryland said Friday they hope to make up the difference.
Organizers initially hoped to raise $2 million this year, but revenue is off by about 20 percent from last year's total of $1.7 million, according to Kim Schmulowitz, Komen Maryland spokeswoman. She said donations usually continue to come until early December from the race.
The event is the biggest fundraiser for the group, which awarded more than $1 million to 17 programs in the state in fiscal 2015 for women with breast cancer or being screened for the disease. Another $430,000 from Komen Maryland went toward national research.
