Susan G. Komen announced a name change & a new concept in its signature fundraising event. The Susan G. Komen More than Pink will be held May 11, 2019 at Bergfeld Park in Tyler.
Along with a new name the fundraising efforts fuels lifesaving research, critical patient care, needed community programs and public policy advocacy in a personal and powerful way.
“Much of what you have come to love about the Race will continue with our new More Than Pink Walk,” said Suzanne Stone, Executive Director of Komen Greater Central and East Texas. “The More than Pink Walk provides an opportunity to come together with others to share stories, laughter and tears while uniting behind a commitment to fight this devastating disease by raising money to save lives.”
Rather than including a timed run element, the event joins participants of all ages and abilities, coming together as one, and supporting those affected by breast cancer today, while helping to search for tomorrow’s cures.
