By: Susan G. Komen
MIAMI - Sept. 1, 2021 - PRLog -- Susan G. Komen, the world's leading breast cancer organization, announced today that its signature fundraising event in Miami, FL will be held in-person once again, after being held virtually last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The annual fundraising event will be held Saturday, October 16, 2021, at Bayfront Park at 301 Biscayne Blvd, Miami, FL. While the event will be hosted in-person this year, there will continue to be a virtual option to participate in the program and connect with the community from your own home or neighborhood for those who prefer that option. Please visit to www.Komen.org/
"After a year apart, we are excited to see everyone join together as one community," said Tia Isoff-Celestin, Development Director, Susan G. Komen, Florida. "The health and safety of our community are, and always have been, our top priorities. After consulting with local health officials, we are confident we can once again gather together as one community of hope and compassion, united by a desire to save lives from breast cancer."
The local event brings together a community of hope and compassion to raise funds to save lives from breast cancer. Funds raised support Komen's advocacy, research investments and support of people facing breast cancer today, ensuring everyone can get the care they need to live.

The Komen Race and Walk are outdoor events with a short opening ceremony and options for spacing as needed. Expect a few changes to ensure that we are able to protect the health and safety of our participants, including those who are currently or have recently undergone breast cancer treatment. While masks or proof of vaccinations will not be required, it is recommended that out of respect for the more vulnerable members of our community, those who are unvaccinated wear masks and social distance as possible.
While only 20 of the 50 Komen Race and Walk fundraising events will be in-person in 2021 – selected on local conditions and to provide in person options in each region of the country – everyone has the opportunity to participate and make an impact through one of our many virtual events this year.
