Susan G. Komen, the world’s leading breast cancer organization, will hold an in-person More Than Pink Walk to raise critical funds that support breast cancer patients and health equity programs, including Susan G. Komen’s Stand for H.E.R— a Health Equity Revolution — a focused initiative to decrease breast cancer disparities in the Black community. The Walk will be held on September 24, 2022, at Lenox Square.
“We look forward to creating a community for those impacted by breast cancer as we gather, in person, for this year’s Walk. Funds raised from the More Than Pink Walk will further Komen’s ability to meet the needs of patients and advance our health equity efforts to break down barriers to quality, timely care that create poor breast health outcomes.” said Dr. Jamar Jeffers, State Executive Director at Susan G. Komen.
