So, where do the funds go? We are happy to say that 75% of the proceeds raised from the Komen Race are allocated within Maryland for grants and programs that help Komen’s mission in eradicating breast cancer. The other 25% goes directly to Komen National for breast cancer research . Komen National is the second largest funder for breast cancer research.

LifeBridge Health’s Freedom to Screen program was awarded a 2012-13 Komen grant which serves low-income, un-insured women to provide resources for breast cancer education and screenings in Northwest Baltimore City and Baltimore County.

**To learn more about Komen, it’s promise and mission, take a moment to view this amazingly inspiring video of someone whom I had the pleasure of meeting through our Breast Friends program
