Susan G. Komen® Miami/Ft. Lauderdale More Than Pink Walk™ Takes Place October 12
Thousands Will Race to Support Life-Saving Breast Health Programs in the Miami/Ft. Lauderdale Area
By: NMG Consulting
Last year, Komen debuted the new event (formerly known as the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure®) with an overwhelmingly positive response. More importantly, the local affiliate has raised over $616,000 in the fight against breast cancer. The MORE THAN PINK Walk ensures that participants have a clear understanding of the value they provide in Susan G. Komen's overall mission and how their fundraising makes an impact in our community.
The MORE THAN PINK Walk is sponsored Bank of America, Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, Publix Kellogg's, South Florida Ford, Miami Cancer Institute, Intercontinental Doral, CVS Pharmacy y Más, Navarro Discount Pharmacy, Team FootWorks and Ryder.
"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," said Sherri Martens-Curtis, Susan G, Komen Executive Director. "We're excited about this year's event and encourage everyone to register and begin fundraising!"

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women worldwide. In the United States, one case of breast cancer is diagnosed every two minutes, and one woman will die of breast cancer every 13 minutes. A lack of health insurance and living in lower-income areas are both associated with lower survival rates among breast cancer patients, as well as the presence of other illnesses, unequal access to care and disparities in treatment.
