Community Impact

Susan G. Komen Central Virginia is the local resource for women who need breast cancer screening, diagnostic, and support services. Through annual events including the Race for the Cure® and individual contributions, Komen Central Virginia 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, which funds ground-breaking research that will one day find the cures. Komen Central Virginia has invested more than $5.8 million in local breast health and breast cancer awareness projects in our service area, which covers 60 cities and counties in central Virginia.
