Last Saturday, several TSG team members got together and participated in the 2022 Komen Dallas North Texas MORE THAN PINK Walk. Dressed head to toe in pink, these warriors came together as ONE to help fund research, increase access to care, support our communities, and commit to action.
Our Dallas team demonstrates just one of our many Shippers Gives Back commitments by participating and raising funds for this Walk every year. With breast cancer being the second most common cancer in women (second to skin cancer), almost everyone has been affected by the disease in some way. Whether you are fighting, supporting, or honoring those we have lost, this Walk is made up of a community that understands the impact we have when we raise ONE more dollar, share ONE more story, and go ONE step further.
About Susan G. Komen Organization – Susan G. Komen is the only organization that addresses breast cancer on multiple fronts such as research, community, health, global outreach, and public policy initiatives in order to make the biggest impact against the disease. In 1982, the organization was founded on the promise to a dying sister that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. What started with $200 and a shoebox full of potential donors, the organization has now grown into the world’s largest nonprofit source of funding for the fight against breast cancer.
To date, they’ve invested more than $3.3 billion in groundbreaking research, community health outreach, advocacy, and programs in more than 60 countries. Their efforts have helped reduce deaths from breast cancer by 40 percent between 1989-2016, and these efforts won’t stop until their promise is fulfilled.
