Our People

  • We are local activists in more than 120 cities and communities, mobilizing more than 1.7 million friends and neighbors every year through events like the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® Series—the world's largest and most successful awareness and fundraising event for breast cancer.
  • We are advocates at the local, state and federal level, fighting for the screening and treatment programs that save lives and the research that brings us closer to the cures.
  • We are global citizens working with local health groups around the world and through our Web site,, to help millions of women in nearly 200 countries overcome the social, cultural and economic barriers to breast health and treatment.

Meet some of the amazing people who are leading us on this journey.
