25th Annual Race for the Cure

Focus Forward supported the Susan G. Komen foundation by participating in the 25th Annual Breast Cancer Walk on Mother’s Day!

Already this year, the local Komen chapter has distributed $2.6 million to 48 organizations and projects across the tri-state region, ranging from the African Family Health Organization to the Wellness Community of Philadelphia. Overall, it has distributed $12.5 million since 2001.

Nationally, Susan G. Komen for the Cure is the largest nonprofit funder of breast cancer projects. It has given nearly $1 billion in grants over the last 25 years. Nancy G. Brinker of Dallas founded the organization in 1982 to fulfill a promise to her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, that she would do everything she could to end breast cancer.

Thanks to everyone who participated!
