Komen 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 intensify its efforts to support the prevention and early detection of today's leading diseases as part of the Walgreens Way to Well Commitment.™
In 2013, Walgreens and its customers raised more than $7 million to support community health and education programs in local communities served by Komen Affiliates. Through this support, Komen and its Affiliates will be able to provide more than 15,000 mammograms for underinsured or uninsured individuals and provide financial patient navigation services to another 222,000. These funds also provide support for the National Treatment Assistance Program, Community Health Education grants and full support of the Susan G. Komen Helpline for the next three years.
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. People can Walk with Walk with Walgreen can be used in preparation for a Komen event, like Race for the Cure or the 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/WaytoWell
