Susan G. Komen®, the world’s leading breast cancer organization, will hold an in-person MORE THAN PINK Walk to raise critical funds that support breast cancer patients and support Komen’s health equity initiatives in the Miami area and beyond. The Walk will be held on October 8, 2022, at Amelia Earhart Park.
“We look forward to creating a community for anyone impacted by breast cancer as we gather, in person, for this year’s Walk. Funds raised from the MORE THAN PINK Walk will further Komen’s ability to meet the needs of patients and advance our health equity revolution to break down barriers to quality, timely care that create poor breast health outcomes.,” said Sean Gross, State Executive Director, at Susan G. Komen.
Komen is pleased to welcome returning sponsors this year: Bank of America, Walgreens, University of Miami Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, Duty Free Americas, Inc., Nature Valley, Ryder, Memorial Cancer Institute, Genentech, Fontainebleau Development, and the Dade County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority. Additionally, Sergio Mendoza will serve as the Executive Leadership Committee Chair and Lauren Pastrana, anchor for CBS4 Miami will serve as Emcee of the event.
Participants can expect to enjoy the following at the Walk:
- Refreshments and an energy station with snacks and water
- Hope Village, a place for survivors and those living with metastatic breast cancer to gather
- Fun Zone and video game truck sponsored by The Florida Panthers
- Breakfast sponsored by McDonald’s and The University of Miami
