Participation for this year's Komen Race for the Cure in Indianapolis fell by 22-percent from a year ago. Last year the there were more than 27,000 participants and that was off 28 percent from 2011.

More than 50 Komen events across the country reported fundraising declines of 20 percent to 30 percent or more in 2012

One of the reported problems affecting Komen events is the backlash from a 2012 decision to pull financial support for Planned Parenthood’s mammogram program.

The decision, seen as politically motivated, infuriated supporters and was quickly reversed, irritating other supporters.
