Komen for the Cure is proud to partner with Walgreens as a National Series Sponsor of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure®. By supporting Komen, Walgreens hopes to help further its efforts to support the prevention and early detection of today's leading diseases as part of the Walgreens Way to Well Commitment.™
In addition to supporting the Race, Walgreens offers Walk with Walgreens, a year round program to inspire Americans to take small steps for their health. Walk with Walgreens as you prepare for a Komen event, like Race for the Cure or the Breast Cancer 3 Day, and be inspired and rewarded for the miles you walk. Whether you are walking everyday for wellness or on Race day to support the fight against breast cancer, more information is available at www.walgreens.com/walk.
Walgreens is also committed to raising awareness through its Pink Promise program. In 2011 and 2012, Walgreens will contribute $1,000,000 to Komen for the Cure through the Pink Promise program through customer donations at register and other pink products sold in stores.
In 2012, this program generated more than $8.2 million through customer donations.
