Each race participant is able to choose which charitable organization that they want their entry fee to benefit. 100% of the funds raised during Pursuit of a Cure benefits the American Cancer Society, Rita Tranberg Memorial, and the Arcadia Ambulance Service.

The Pursuit of a Cure event has grown drastically each year, since its inception in 2012, as an American Cancer Society fundraiser.
