At Susan G. Komen, our mission is to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering others, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures.
Komen South Florida is working to better the lives of those facing breast cancer in the local community. We join more than a million breast cancer survivors and activists around the globe as part of the world’s largest and most progressive grassroots network fighting breast cancer. Through events like the Komen South Florida Race for the Cure, Komen South Florida has invested over $11.6 million in community breast health programs in Palm Beach, Martin, and St. Lucie counties.
Up to 75 percent of net proceeds generated by the Affiliate stays in our service area of Palm Beach, Martin and St. Lucie Counties to fund vital breast health education and breast cancer screening, treatment and patient navigation grants.. The remaining income goes to the national Susan G. Komen Grants Program to fund research.
