Susan G. Komen’s 2021 More Than Pink Walk
Breast cancer survivors, “thrivers,” and supporters walked in neighborhoods, on treadmills, and on trails and beaches across Southern California to raise funds for Susan G. Komen as part of the organization’s signature MORE THAN PINK Walk fundraising event on Saturday, September 25.
The event was held in a “walk where you are” format for the safety of all participants in Orange County, Los Angeles, one-of-a-kind and the Inland Empire. The walk united the community as women, men, and children rallied around their loved ones affected by breast cancer and so far raised more than $357,000 for the lifesaving research, advocacy, and patient care support that Komen provides.
This year, Komen created a one-of-a kind digital experience that connected participants from all across the community who walked and fundraised to end breast cancer. No matter where the public joined in from with their walk teams across Orange County, Los Angeles, and the Inland Empire, participants were connected by Komen’s vision for a world without breast cancer.
Fundraising for the MORE THAN PINK Walk campaign continues on through October 24 to support the Komen Helpline, Treatment Assistance Program and navigating of patients into care and support, where the organization is seeing the biggest need following the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Sponsors of the MORE THAN PINK Walk include CBS2 KCAL9, San Manuel Cares, Mentor Worldwide, Allergan Aesthetics, an AbbVie Company, Abbott, Bank of America, Milgard Windows & Doors, MI Foundation, Dr. RxCBD, Cedars-Sinai, Kaiser Permanente Orange County, and Cox Communications.
