Exclusive national charity Susan G. Komen Marathon for the Cure
The Susan G. Komen Marathon for the Cure is dedicated to putting 86 cents of each dollar raised toward funding valuable research and community outreach programs. Without the cures, approximately 465,000 women will die from the disease each year globally.
The Komen San Antonio Affiliate has invested more than $11.25 million since inception in 1997. Seventy-five percent of net funds support local nonprofit programs providing vital breast cancer screening, treatment and education in San Antonio. The remaining 25 percent goes to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Grants Program for groundbreaking breast cancer research and scientific programs around the world.
This panel presentation will look at the history of the YWCA and the impact the organization has had on women in the San Antonio community.
