This year I will be venturing to Texas to participate in the Susan G. Komen 3 day Walk with some of my sisters’ friends and a few thousand other individuals who are all there for one purpose … to raise funds and support the cause … to build a world free of Breast Cancer through Research, Community, Care and Action.
Susan G. Komen has transformed how the world treats and talks about this disease and have mobilized the largest and most passionate community. Since 1982, they’ve funded nearly $1.1 billion in research, more than $2.3 billion in education, screening and treatment, serving millions in over 60 countries worldwide. The funds raised by passionate 3-day supporters and participants is used to invest in cutting-edge research that will lead to new, more effective treatments, working in communities across the country to ensure all people can access the care they need, and mobilizing passionate supporters to make certain the voice of the breast cancer community is heard by policymakers.
It’s Personal … This is a cause near and dear to our family, and many others. My sisters and I began working with AVON from 204 thru 2017 and now we are a part of the Susan G Komen ‘family’. Not only did we walk, crew and volunteer but we have walked with our children and grandchildren as well! This is really a ‘family affair’, and quickly you become part of a much larger family.
We do this … for our family, our children, and grandchildren.
We do this … because we can.
We do this for … those who cannot.
We consider it a privilege to serve this cause, making a difference in the lives of many.
