More Than Pink Walk
We have exciting news to share! This year, we are evolving our signature fundraising event (Race for the Cure) to a new experience – the Susan G. Komen MORE THAN PINK Walk! We’ll join more than 60 communities across the U.S. to showcase the power of your support and how your fundraising impacts research, addresses gaps in care, provides vital services to vulnerable individuals and helps us take action to end breast cancer forever.
Take the first step to help us save lives from breast cancer and support your community.
Q. Why are you changing the name from Race for the Cure to MORE THAN PINK Walk?
A. This change is part of the ongoing evolution of Susan G. Komen and builds on Komen’s successful and engaging MORE THAN PINK brand platform first introduced in 2016. MORE THAN PINK highlights the fact the organization and those who support our work are much more than a color and enables us to better connect our supporters to the full breadth of the work we do every day to help save lives from breast cancer. The change from a Race to a Walk also aligns the fundraising event with the experience of the vast majority of our participants.
Q. Other than the name change, what differences will I see?
A. The biggest difference is that the MORE THAN PINK Walk will not have a run element. We’re focusing on making the event a walk – which reflects the vast majority of our participants historically – to create a greater sense of community among participants and to provide a more personalized, emotional experience for all who attend. And by focusing on the walk, we can maximize the amount of funds raised by the event available to support our work to save lives and end breast cancer.Survivors and those living with metastatic breast cancer will receive an event t-shirt. All other participants must fundraise $100 or more to receive an event t-shirt, which reflects our commitment to raising funds to help those facing breast cancer. All Walk participants will receive a special item that will be used during the Opening Ceremony.
