Susan G. Komen®, the world’s leading breast cancer organization, will host the inaugural MORE THAN PINK Walk to raise critical funds that support breast cancer patients and the patient navigation program in the area. Charlotte is one of only a few cities in the U.S. with a patient navigator and this event will continue to fund the critical work that this team does. The Walk will be held on October 8, 2022, at Uptown Charlotte.

Funds raised from the MORE THAN PINK Walk will further our ability to meet the needs of patients by supporting Komen’s Patient Care Center’s Breast Care Helpline, Financial Assistance and Patient Navigation programs, and improve outcomes for all patients,” said, Kimberly Burrows, State Executive Director at Susan G. Komen.
