Big Changes Coming to Komen Ozark Race for the Cure!
We have some exciting news to share and we wanted you to be among the first to know. We have been hard at work creating the next evolution in the history of the Race for the Cure series– and the next chapter begins here! This spring in April, we will be one of 26 locations across the country premiering the Susan G. Komen MORE THAN PINK Walk™!
|Much of what you have come to love about the Race will continue with the MORE THAN PINK Walk™, but with a fresh new look and experience that is sure to energize our community around the lifesaving work your support is making possible. These changes are intended to increase people’s connection to our work beyond breast cancer awareness. Together we are a community of people who want to do more; More for our communities, more for those living with breast cancer – including metastatic breast cancer – and more for research and action to find the cures.|
|The biggest difference is that the MORE THAN PINK Walk™ will focus on connecting our participants to our cause and our community, reflecting the vast majority of the event’s participants who walk, rather than run, during the event historically. We believe this change will create a greater sense of purpose among participants and will provide a more personalized, emotional experience for all who attend. We will also be introducing you to our new pillars of our organization: Research, Care, Community, and Action. These pillars will help you and our other supporters understand the impact you make when you fundraise for this year’s event. Also, by eliminating the costs associated with a separate timed run, we will maximize the amount of funds raised by the event available to support our work to save lives and end breast cancer.|
|Our commitment to creating a world without breast cancer is stronger than ever, and our Bold Goal to reduce the number of breast cancer deaths by 50% in the U.S. by 2026 CAN BE ACHIEVED. We hope this new approach will better connect our supporters to our work to save lives and help generate the critical funds needed to succeed.|
