Breast cancer affects almost everyone’s life is some way and the Susan G. Komen foundation works every day to change this. The “More Than Pink Walk” is the organization’s latest initiative and it takes place Sunday, Sept. 24 at the Henry Maier Festival Park.
Gates open for the More Than Pink Walk at 7:30 a.m. followed by a kick-off ceremony at 9 a.m. and the walk at 9:15 a.m.
So far, the organization has raised almost $22,000 towards the $416,200 goal. Dollars go towards research, screening and treatment assistance, emotional support, child care, transportation and advocacy.
By clicking here participants can register to walk as a team or individual and/or make a donation.
This year, all T-shirts will be mailed prior to the walk and there will be no event-day shirt pickup. Anyone who registers or raises $100 by Sunday, Aug. 27 will receive their shirt before event day.
