Komen New England announces virtual walks

Susan G. Komen® New England has announced that all three of its 2020 MORE THAN PINK Walk™ events will be held virtually this year. Registration details are available at https://komenenewengland.org/walk . Being a virtual event allows anyone, anywhere, to register free and plan to #WalkWhereYouAre on Oct. 24. Additionally, Komen New England is planning an online event day experience through social media channels.

Susan G. Komen® notes that the MORE THAN PINK Walk™ serves two purposes: it is a fundraiser that fuels Komen’s breast cancer research and patient support efforts, and it provides all those touched by breast cancer a sense of being a part of a large compassionate community committed to making a difference in the fight against breast cancer.

There is no fee to register for this year’s virtual fundraising event or to access Komen’s online fundraising tools, including the Susan G. Komen MORE THAN PINK Walk app. An update is coming in early August.

To register or to make an event donation to one of the New England MORE THAN PINK Walk events, visit https://komennewengland.org/walk.
