Susan G. Komen®, the world’s leading breast cancer organization, today announced that it will hold the Central Texas MORE THAN PINK Walk on October 30, 2022.
“We are excited to welcome Walk participants in person this year and grateful for the opportunity to provide a community for anyone who has been impacted by breast cancer. Whether you are in treatment, celebrating survivorship, or a family member, friend or loved one, we hope you will join us in October and be part of our collective efforts to end breast cancer forever,” said Jeannine O’Deens, Executive Director at Susan G. Komen.
This year’s MORE THAN PINK Walk event, sponsored by Dell Technologies and First Trust, is in a new location at Barton Creek Square in Austin. Additionally, community walks are being planned by volunteer committees in San Antonio and Waco to provide a gathering space for participants in our sister Central Texas communities.
“We welcome all the members of our breast cancer community honoring friends, family and anyone who has been impacted by the disease,” said Ric Maddox, Development Director at Susan G. Komen. “The MORE THAN PINK Walk is about making strides toward curing breast cancer and the funds raised through donations, fundraising, and sponsorships will give more individuals who have been impacted by the disease access to resources and the support they need now.”
The Power of ONE Week – a week’s worth of events to honor those who have been impacted by breast cancer – will precede the Walk October 23-29. A schedule of in-person and virtual events and additional details will be announced soon.
