Mission Statement

To eradicate breast cancer as a life-threatening disease by advancing research, education, screening and treatment.

Description

Since 1994, the Central Oklahoma Affiliate has raised in excess of $2.3 million. With the support of our signature fundraiser, the Race for the Cure, we awarded nearly $300 thousand toward the fight against breast cancer by funding grassroots educational programs as well as national research. 75 percent of the net proceeds raised by the Affiliate are dedicated to fighting breast cancer in the Central Oklahoma Affiliate Service Area. This area includes Canadian, Cleveland, Grady, Kingfisher, Lincoln, Logan, McClain, Oklahoma, Payne, and Pottawatomie counties. Grants are awarded each year to local hospitals and community organizations that provide innovative outreach and awareness programs for medically underserved women. Recent grantees include Clinica de la Mujer Latina, Project Woman, the Oklahoma Witness Project, the University of Oklahoma, Health for Friends and KIDLINK. Twenty-five percent of the net proceeds raised by the Affiliate fund the national breast cancer research through the Komen Foundation Research Program.
