The Details

The Komen Philadelphia MORE THAN PINK Walk is a community fundraising effort to add even more fuel to the fight against breast cancer. While the event culminates with the Mother’s Day experience, the true impact of the Walk comes from our community of participants working together from January through May to raise money and encourage participation of friends and family. With every new person who gets involved—with every dollar you raise—we increase Komen Philadelphia’s ability to save more lives through community programs and research.

Please note these hallmark features that were introduced when we evolved from the Race for the Cure to the MORE THAN PINK Walk last year:

  • Contained event: To make your Mother’s Day experience more personal and communal, our MORE THAN PINK Walk will be a contained event. You must register to gain access to the ceremonies, the Walk and other activities.
  • T-shirt and other fundraiser recognitions: We will recognize everyone who raises at least $100 by giving them a 2020 MORE THAN PINK Walk T-shirt. Our enhanced fundraiser program recognizes achievements starting at $100.
  • Community walk: Instead of a 5K, everyone will walk as a united community from Eakins Oval to Logan Circle. Participants can do any distance by simply returning to the Oval at any point during the walk.
  • Mission immersion! From our ongoing communications with participants to the events of Mother’s Day, at every turn you have the opportunity to see and truly understand the impact of your participation on the lives of your neighbors, in the research labs, in local breast cancer facilities and for all future generations.
  • Later start time: Opening Ceremonies start at 7:30 a.m.

 

What next?

Start by registering yourself and family members. If you have a large group of participants from your work, school, neighborhood, family or special interest group, we strongly encourage you to start a team when you register.

Your next step is to then show the world that you are MORE THAN PINK by fundraising! This can mean asking people to donate to your 2020 Walk campaign, holding a fundraising event, having businesses sponsor your participation or team, or anything in between. Remember, registering is an important first step, but it’s the dollars we raise as a MORE THAN PINK Walk community that will truly allow us to save more lives in the years ahead!
