Community Impact

Susan G. Komen Northern & Central California is the local resource for women who need breast cancer screening, diagnostic and support services.

Through annual events including the Komen Sacramento Race for the Cure and Komen Central Valley Race for the Cure, and individual contributions, Komen Northern & Central California 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.
