Susan G. Komen Charlotte is the local resource for women (and men) who need breast cancer screening, diagnostic and support services. Through annual events including the Race for the Cure and individual contributions, Komen Charlotte raises funds that enable women to detect and survive breast cancer.
Seventy-five percent of all funds raised by Komen Charlotte 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 is contributed to the Susan G. Komen® Grants Program. Komen Charlotte and our dedicated advocates and fundraisers have raised more than $16 million in local breast health and breast cancer awareness projects in our 13-county county service area since 1997.
