Community Impact

Susan G. Komen Sacramento is the local resource for women who need breast cancer screening, diagnostic and support services. Through annual events including the Race for the Cure and individual contributions, Komen Sacramento raises funds that enable women to detect and survive breast cancer.

Seventy-five percent of all funds raised by the Affiliate stay in our service area to fund breast health programs for women who would not otherwise have access to screening and treatment. Twenty-five percent of funds raised supports the Susan G. Komen® Grants Program . Komen Sacramento has raised more than $X million in local breast health and breast cancer awareness projects in our 19 county service area.
