WHY THE CHANGE?
Breast cancer is changing and so is Komen Orange County. Every day in Orange County five women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and one will die from the disease. There is much to do beyond wearing your favorite shade of pink--awareness is important, but action saves lives.

The walk event experience is designed to give participants a closer look at how their efforts are making a significant impact in critical breast cancer research, local community programs, public policy advocacy, and patient care in our local community. Thanks to your support of Komen initiatives and programs, early breast cancer detection and effective treatments have resulted in a 40% decline in breast cancer mortality in the U.S. in the last five years.

But our work isn’t over yet.

As long as people are suffering, we are committed to this fight and we need you to walk with us on Sunday, September 22. Plus, every dollar you raise funds more life-saving research, needed community health programs, public policy advocacy, and critical patient care for those we love in Orange County and beyond. Learn more in our FAQ.


You have the power to change lives.  Walk with us!
