To double their donations, participants can head to their nearest XFINITY retail store and look for the pink iPad display. Race registrations will be accepted and matched at XFINITY stores through Friday, June 5 and donations through Race day – Sunday, June 7.

Comcast has committed to support the matching campaign up to $25,000. The company will match one registration fee or donation per participant.

Race for the Cure starts at 8 a.m. on June 7 at Seattle Center. This year’s Race – the 22nd annual – includes events for walkers, runners, families and breast cancer survivors.

“We are thrilled that our longtime supporter Comcast has deepened its commitment to fighting breast cancer and to our communities in need,” said David Richart, Executive Director of Komen Puget Sound. Race for the Cure is Komen Puget Sound’s single largest fundraiser; donations are invested in breast cancer research and local grants that provide breast cancer early detection screenings and education, patient navigation and support to those in need.

“Employees throughout Comcast participated in the Race for the Cure for years, and it’s exciting to take this support to a new level. I can’t think of anyone at Comcast who hasn’t been touched in some way by breast cancer through personal experience or family and friends. We are excited to partner with the Susan G. Komen Puget Sound and be a part of the solution to end breast cancer,” said Steve Kipp, Vice President of External Affairs for Comcast.
