To our Susan G. Komen 3-Day family,
The current debate over the changes to Susan G. Komen’s grant-making programs continues. What also continues is the need for us to focus on the undeniable fact that women are diagnosed with breast cancer and die from breast cancer every day.
No group associated with Susan G. Komen for the Cure works harder than all of you who participate in the 3-Day. The energy and passion you demonstrate through involvement with the 3-Day is an inspiration to all of us. Regardless of the ongoing debate, we need to step back and remember why we all got involved in the first place. We are united in our energy and our passion to eradicate breast cancer.
The debate will continue. The dollars at the center of it are but a small fraction of the overall commitment made by Susan G. Komen over the past 30 years. What can never be debated is that our fight against breast cancer cannot be sidetracked.
On that we know we all stand together and we thank you for your shared commitment.
The Susan G. Komen 3-Day Team
