Cheer-On the Susan G. Komen walk-this weekend

“Walking 60 miles in 3 days can be your life-changing journey to help end breast cancer forever.”
In 1980, Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan, that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became the Susan G. Komen® organization and the beginning of a global movement. What was started with $200 and a shoebox full of potential donor names has now grown into the world’s largest nonprofit source of funding for the fight against breast cancer. To date, they have invested more than $2.6 billion in groundbreaking research, community health outreach, advocacy and programs in more than 30 countries.
Seventy-five percent of the net proceeds raised by the Susan G. Komen 3-Day help support Susan G. Komen’s Research and Training Grant Program and large public health outreach programs for women and men facing breast cancer. The remaining 25 percent helps fund local community and Affiliate support and outreach programs.
