Saturday, October 23, 2021
9:00 Virtual Opening Ceremony
Walk Where You Are
T-shirts will be hand delivered or mailed between October 11-15 to all participants who raise $100 prior to October 15 in an effort for your shirt to arrive before event day. For those who reach $100 from October 16-November 23, t-shirts will be mailed on a rolling basis and cannot be guaranteed for event day.
We are still confirming t-shirt pick up locations and dates and will update when finalized.
Power of ONE Week
October 18 — October 22 | ONE final week, and ONE final push to make a HUGE impact in the fight against breast cancer. Together, let's see what a difference ONE week can make.
Click for a week’s worth of downloadable tools, including graphics for sharing on social, digital stickers and GIFs to jazz up your photos, and more!
Don’t forget to post photos of your daily celebrations to our Facebook Group or social media and use #PowerOfONEWeek so they’ll be displayed on our ONE Community Photo Wall!
Complete the ONE Mission Journey online here or in the MORE THAN PINK Walk App. Then share one new thing you learned on social with a link to your fundraising page.
Share a photo of your reason for walking/racing via text, email or social media. Ask your audience to support you and your reason for walking. Get ready for this weekend! Download and fill out your In Celebration / In Memory back sign now.
A great activity for teams, family and friends, this day is all about community! Host an outdoor dinner party/virtual cocktail hour. Ask all those in attendance to donate $20 "at the door". We even have some ONE pot recipes (or share your own!) and Komen Conversation Cards available for download in the Fundraising Tools section of your Participant Center.
It’s a Power of ONE Week Party to celebrate as ONE for the cause. Take this day to thank your donors for their support! We’ll also be announcing this year’s superlatives to celebrate YOU, our amazing fundraisers!
It's time to pink out! Let's see those tutus, boas, vintage Race/Walk tees, accessories and more. Share a selfie in our Facebook Group and then post to social media using #powerofONEweek #morethanPINK/#RacefortheCure #ONEkomen.
FUN FUNDRAISING IDEA: Use your outfit to create a "Dare to Wear" fundraising challenge, telling your followers you'll add one more pink item to your Walk/Race day outfit for every $20 you raise on Friday.
Join us for Komen Bingo! This week, cross off blocks on the bingo card as you participate in Power of ONE Week activities, learn about Komen's 360° approach to finding the cures to breast cancer and, most importantly, raise funds to support Komen's work. How many ways can you spell KOMEN? Click to download the Komen Bingo Card and Power of ONE Week Schedule and play along. Post your progress on social media and in our Walk Facebook group!

When you get done walking, don’t forget to snap a selfie and head on over to komen.org/finishline to create your very own Finish Line Photo that can be shared via text, email, or on social media with #ONEkomen #MoreThanPink.
ONE Photo Wall
This is what ONE community looks like. View all the powerful moments from the Connecticut MORE THAN PINK Walk and other Races and Walks from across the country. Share your event day photos on social with #ONEKomen and #MoreThanPink to have your photos appear on the wall!
On Saturday, October 23, 2021, we will walk for the people who can't: For those too weakened by treatment to join. For those who are suffering. For those we have lost. Together we will fight back against breast cancer.
