WHY WE FUNDRAISE

  • Because 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
  • Because every 19 seconds, somewhere in the world, someone dies from breast cancer.
  • Because every 60 seconds, somewhere in the world, someone dies from breast cancer; every 13 minutes, one woman in the U.S. will loose her life to breast cancer.
  • Because, breast cancer knows no boundaries. It affects people of every age, gender, socio-economic status and geographic location.
  • Because the current rate, 13 million breast cancer deaths will occur around the world in the next 25 years.
  • Because it's time to go beyond breast cancer awareness. It's time to take action!

Take Action

We can fight these statistics together. Join the breast cancer movement by fundraising for the Impact Ride. 

Your fundraising has the power to make a true IMPACT. Just consider how far we have come, thanks in part to supporters like you:

  • In 1980, the 5-year survival rate for women diagnosed with early-stage breast cancer was about 74 percent. Today, that number is 99 percent.
  • Since out founding in 1982, Susan G. Komen's national research program has invested in cutting edge research that has helped make major breakthroughs possible.
  • Funding for discoveries in genetics and biology has led to personalized, less-invasive breast cancer treatments to replace the less-effective "one-treatment-fits-all" approach.

The Impact Ride is your opportunity to turn your support for the breast cancer movement into action. Prove that you are More Than Pink, and help us end breast cancer forever.

We are proud of our excellent fundraising abilities. However, what's even more important than the money we raise is what we do with it. We are extremely careful with the dollars you have entrusted to our care.
