Susan G. Komen Orange County is a local breast health organization helping to serve women and save lives. Komen Orange County was founded in 1991 by a group of individuals committed to the Komen vision of a world without breast cancer. The Affiliate needs to raise $3 million dollars this year to fund services to help local women struggling with breast cancer, provide mobile mammography for uninsured low-income women, and fund important research on more effective treatments to stop metastatic breast cancer and new methods of early detection. Seventy-five percent of funds raised are invested in local breast health needs and services and 25 percent is dedicated to the Komen Award and Research Grant Program to fund groundbreaking breast cancer research.
The 2017 Komen Orange County Race for the Cure will happen on Sunday, September 24, 2017 at Fashion Island Newport Beach.
