Susan G. Komen® Philadelphia MORE THAN PINK Walk™

Sun May 12, 2019 Directions
Where the Money Goes
Seventy-five percent of the money raised through the Susan G. Komen Philadelphia MORE THAN PINK Walk™ will remain in our 15-county service area to support the initiatives of Komen Philadelphia and our community grantees. The remaining twenty-five percent will support breakthrough breast cancer research.

Due, in large part, to the money raised by participants in our largest annual fundraiser—now called the MORE THAN PINK Walk—Komen Philadelphia in the past 28 years has:

  • Distributed more than $62.5 million in grants to fund the programs of local hospitals and outreach community health organizations
  • Funded more than 176,500 free mammograms for women in our community
  • Contributed approximately $27 million to breast cancer research

Every dollar you raise as a MORE THAN PINK Walk participant will advance our bold goals:

  • Nationally: To reduce the current number of breast cancer deaths by 50 percent by the year 2026
  • Locally: To reduce the number of late-stage breast cancer diagnoses by 15 percent by the year 2021

Thank you for your participation! Every dollar you help us raise will move our mission forward, allowing us to save more lives every day by meeting the most critical needs in our communities, and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer.
