Nearly 6,500 people, including more than 500 breast cancer survivors, registered for the 2014 Susan G. Komen Quad Cities Race for the Cure. Runners, walkers, sponsors, fundraisers, and those who participated through “Sleep in for the Cure” helped raise more than $200,000 dollars through their efforts.

Participants enjoyed a great race, pink glove dance, kids zone, sponsor and photo booths, and refreshments as well as camaraderie.

More than $40,000 was raised through individual and team fundraisers. Donations through fundraising tripled.

After the Race, participants stayed for the first “After Party for the Cure” in downtown Moline, where more than a dozen businesses offered discounts to participants showing their bib or wearing their Race t-shirt. Bands played outside to entertain the crowd. The participating merchants also made a donation to Komen.

More than $5.7 million has been raised through the Race since its inception in the Quad-Cities in 1990.
