Why We Fundraise

Simply put, the Susan G. Komen Philadelphia MORE THAN PINK Walk™ community fundraises to save lives!

Every dollar you raise will help Komen Philadelphia make it possible for more people to survive breast cancer every day by supporting our services and initiatives in 15 counties, and by funding the work of our community grantees. In addition, your fundraising will make it possible for researchers to pursue the most critical needs, such as understanding, preventing and treating metastatic breast cancer and discovering new treatments and technologies to improve outcomes for all patients. Together, these activities funded by your participation bring us closer to a world in which every person diagnosed with breast cancer is certain to survive breast cancer!

Through the work of Komen Philadelphia, you’ll see the impact of your fundraising efforts make an impact every day in the labs, in local hospitals and clinics, in churches and classrooms, at your place of employment, in your neighborhood and, very possibly, within your own circle of family and friends.

OUR BOLD GOAL: TO REDUCE THE CURRENT NUMBER OF BREAST CANCER DEATHS IN THE U.S. BY 50 PERCENT BY THE YEAR 2026.

Approximately 41,000 people in the U.S. will die of breast cancer this year alone. Our work will not stop until breast cancer is no longer a threat to any life.
