Throughout the year, our students, faculty and staff join together to support a great cause – the race to cure breast cancer.

blog-breast_healthThat’s why we take an active role in supporting Susan G. Komen® via the Race for the Cure®.

The Race for the Cure series of 5K runs and fitness walks raises awareness for the breast cancer movement, celebrates breast cancer survivorship and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease.

Chamberlain campuses across the nation participate in their local Race for the Cure events, building teams and walking together in support of the cause. Since 2008, we’ve participated in over 60 Race events and have received several honors, including:

  • Winning the “Largest Team” Award at the Chicago Race for the Cure in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013, with 200 participants registered for each race
  • Winning the “Top Fundraising School Team” for the Chicago Race for the Cure event in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015

To date, we’ve donated over $350,000 to support this very worthy cause.
