Where Your Money Goes

Susan G. Komen is the world’s largest breast cancer organization, funding more breast cancer research than any other nonprofit while providing real-time help to those facing the disease. Komen was founded by Nancy G. Brinker, who promised her sister, Susan G. Komen, that she would end the disease that claimed Suzy’s life.


Komen Columbus is working to better the lives of those facing breast cancer in the local community. Through events like the Komen Columbus Race for the Cure®, Komen Columbus has invested more than  $33 million in community breast health programs in 30-county service area since 1993. Susan G. Komen has invested more than $13.5 million in breast cancer research in Ohio and  $899 million in global research.
