Komen Lexington. Come by and meet the Board of Directors and staff along with enjoying cocktails, appetizers, and live music!

Up to 75 percent of the proceeds raised will stay in the Central Kentucky area to fund local screening, treatment and education outreach programs for breast cancer focusing on the medically underserved. Without the cures, an estimated 25 million women around the world will be diagnosed with breast cancer-and 10 million could die over the next 25 years.
Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, the global leader of the breast cancer movement, has invested more than $1.9 billion since inception in 1982. As the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists, we’re working together to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to events like the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® and the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure®, and generous contributions from our partners, sponsors and fellow supporters, we have become the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.
About the Lexington Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® Komen for the Cure’s presence in Kentucky began in 1996 with a Race for the Cure at the Kentucky Horse Park. Komen Lexington serves local communities by providing funding for research and local life-saving programs which address education, screening and treatment for Kentucky residents.
