The Columbus Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, or Komen Columbus, is part of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the world's largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists. Our Mission is to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures. We're most well-known for our signature event, the Komen Columbus Race for the Cure, and serve 30 counties in Central and Southeastern Ohio by funding breast cancer education, screening and treatment assistance programs. Seventy-five percent of all contributions we receive remain in central and southeastern Ohio and the remaining 25 percent funds scientific research at the global level. Check out our video on The Komen Columbus Promise, featuring local survivors and supporters telling our story in their words. Please download our 2009 Community Report for an update on our finances, our affiliate priorities and how to get involved. The report also includes information on what crucial programs and services your generous contributions fund.
