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!
