DALLAS, May 5, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Susan G. Komen®, the world’s leading breast cancer organization, has launched registration for the 2023 Susan G. Komen MORE THAN PINK Walk, Race for the Cure and the virtual Walk Where You Are events.
In addition to the current 49 locations across the U.S., Komen has added three new walks in San Antonio, Portland and Seattle.
This spring and summer, from May through June, and this fall, from September through November, including October’s National Breast Cancer Awareness month, thousands of dedicated individuals and their families impacted by breast cancer will walk or run in support of Susan G. Komen.
