MORE THAN $1 MILLION RE-INVESTED BACK IN TO THE COMMUNITY
Susan G. Komen® Greater Kansas City is the local resource for women who need breast cancer screening, diagnostic and support services. Through annual events including the Race for the Cure®, Pink Promise Brunch, Rock the Ribbon and individual contributions, Komen Kansas City raises funds that enable women to detect and survive breast cancer.
Seventy-five percent (75%) of all funds raised by the Affiliate stay in our service area to fund breast health programs for women who would not otherwise have access to screening and treatment. Twenty-five percent (25%) of funds raised supports the Susan G. Komen® Grants Program.
Komen Kansas City has invested more than $15.4 million in local breast health and breast cancer awareness projects in our 17-county service area over the past 22 years. When you add in the scientific research contribution: the local Kansas City affiliate has committed more than $19 million in total.
This year: More than $1 million is re-invested back in to the community through:
– Local Grantees (Focusing on education, screenings, diagnosis & treatment)
– National Research (including grants in our service area at the University of Kansas Cancer Center)
– Mission Support (Grants program, community organizing, public policy work, outreach & breast health service referrals)
