SDCCU is supporting breast cancer research and treatments as a sponsor of the Susan G. Komen San Diego Race for the Cure®, a 5k run/walk fundraiser to be held starting at 8 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 2, in San Diego’s Balboa Park area.
More than 15,000 people have participated either as a walker or timed runner at previous Komen Race events in San Diego.

The start line will be on 6th Avenue at Palm Street and the finish line will be on Balboa Drive, south of Quince Street. The pre- and post-event activities take place on the grassy area along 6th Avenue between Laurel Avenue and Quince Street. The registration cost on the day of the event starts at $45 per person for adults, $40 per person for military with I.D., $33 for youth ages six to 12 and $25 per person for children ages five and under.
