Mission

Susan G. Komen® Nevada is one of 104 U.S. and 3 international Affiliates dedicated to combating breast cancer at every front. Our service area encompasses the 17 counties in the state of Nevada. With a local staff of 3 and a volunteer base of more than 400 community members, Komen Nevada is committed to fulfilling the Susan G. Komen® Promise: to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality of care for all and energizing science to find the cures. While perhaps best known for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® – our affiliate is engaged in year-round activities that help us fulfill the Komen Promise on a daily basis: - advocating for universal access to screening and treatment - providing breast health education and community outreach - serving as a resource for survivors and co-survivors - funding life-saving education, screening and treatment programs in southern and northern Nevada We are proud that up to 75 percent of our net income stays in Nevada to fund vital mission programs, while 25 percent supports the internationally recognized Komen Award and Research Grants Program, which funds groundbreaking breast cancer research, meritorious awards and educational and scientific programs around the world. Creating a world without breast cancer is a big job, and not one that can be done alone. Komen Nevada thanks all of our dedicated volunteers, sponsors, donors, event participants and other community partners for helping us play such a crucial role in our community.

Up to 75 percent of net proceeds generated by the Komen Southern Nevada Affiliate stay in the community to fund breast health education, screening and treatment services, while the remaining income goes to the Susan G.

Additionally, walkers are able to experience the impact of their fundraising through the introduction of Komen’s organizational pillars and participate in special activities focused on research, care, community and action.
