Susan G. Komen®, the world’s leading breast cancer organization, will hold an in-person MORE THAN PINK Walk in Murrietahttps://www.komen.org/orangecountywalk to raise critical funds that support breast cancer patients in Inland Empire who are in need of financial assistance.

The Inland Empire Walk will be held on Sunday, October 9, in Town Square Park in Murrieta. The opening ceremony will be held in the city’s new, state-of-the-art amphitheater. The open-air amphitheater is billed as the biggest of its kind in the region.

Funds raised will support patients in need of support services like the Komen Financial Assistance Program,” said Jill Eaton, Executive Director of Inland Empire Susan G. Komen.
