Community Impact

In May 2019, Komen Central Virginia and Komen Tidwater combined forces to create Susan G. Komen Central & Eastern Virginia. We are the local resource for women who need breast cancer screening, diagnostic, and support services. Through annual events including the MORE THAN PINK Walk™ and individual contributions, Komen Central & Eastern Virginia raises funds that enable women to detect and survive breast cancer.

Seventy-five percent of all funds raised by the Affiliate 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 supports the Susan G. Komen® Grants Program, which funds ground-breaking research that will one day find the cures.

Komen Central & Eastern Virginia has invested more than $11.7 million in local breast health and breast cancer awareness projects in our service area, which covers 80 cities and counties in central and eastern Virginia.
