3 Days, 60 Miles To End Breast Cancer

Susan G. Komen for the Cure®
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, Komen has funded more than $920 million in research and provided $1.95 billion in funding to screening, education, treatment and psychosocial support programs serving millions of people in more than 30 countries worldwide. And we won’t stop until our promise is fulfilled.

Because Everyone Deserves A Lifetime®
