Celebrating 20 Years of Giving!
In 2013, Susan G. Komen Greater Kansas City turned 20 years old! A lot has happened in the last two decades. After our first Race for the Cure in Corporate Woods in July of 1994, Komen KC presented its first grants in February 1995. $42,000 was given to Truman Medical Center and $42,000 was given to The University of Kansas Hospital. In 2013, our grants will reached nearly $1.0 Million. That means even more help for medically vulnerable women, men and their families in our 17-county service area. During these challenging times, that has a real impact.
This remarkable growth would not be possible without you! Thank you for two decades of support!
Since our inception, Komen Kansas City has invested more than $13.0 Million in local community breast health programs and education as well as more than $4 Million to the most promising breast cancer research programs. During this time more than $6.5 Million in research grants have come back to our service area, including a $4.5 Million Promise Grant to Dr. Carol Fabian at the University of Kansas Medical Center.
Our celebration took place in person as well as digitally throughout the year … here are just a few samples of the anniversary campaign:
