Standup for the Cure another Komen success

On May 4, the 8th annual Standup for the Cure fundraiser returned to Newport Beach to support local breast health screening services and research provided by Susan G. Komen Orange County. More than 600 breast cancer survivors, advocates and community members gathered together in a “Sea of Pink” to raise awareness and funds for Komen OC’s initiatives to create a world without breast cancer through advocacy programs, community outreach, care and research.

The event featured on-land and on the bay activities including yoga classes, relay races, paddleboard clinics, live music, opportunity drawings and more. During the event, more than 100 attendees received free breast and skin cancer screenings provided by Kaiser Permanente.

Since its inception in 2012, Standup for the Cure has raised more than $1.2 million for Susan G. Komen, with more than $550,000 directly benefiting Komen OC. Komen OC initiatives support local patients, caregivers and survivors with resources including patient navigation, research, free mammograms, wigs, transportation, diagnostics services, education and financial assistance.

In Orange County, every day, five women are diagnosed with breast cancer – each day one local woman will also die from the disease. Susan G. Komen Orange County has a bold goal to reduce the current number of breast cancer deaths by 50 percent in the U.S. by 2026.
