Why We Fundraise

 

Plain and simple, the money you help us raise in support of this MORE THAN PINK Virtual Walk will be used to save the lives of individuals facing, at risk for or who one day will be threatened by breast cancer. It will also be used to support Komen Philadelphia's Patient Assistance Program—one of the most critical needs in our community as families face the financial challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. The dollars we raise together 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 advance their work, 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 any form of this disease is assured not only to survive, but to live a quality life after breast cancer.

Through the work of Komen Philadelphia, you’ll see the impact that your fundraising efforts make 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 42,000 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.
