Sycuan Goes Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October 12, 2021

On Friday, October 8 Sycuan Team Members participated in Go Pink Day by wearing pink to show further support to Susan G. Komen San Diego and our guests and team members who have been impacted by breast cancer.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a worldwide annual campaign involving thousands of organizations, to highlight the importance of breast awareness, education and research.

Sycuan also proudly presented a $10,000 donation to Susan G. Komen San Diego in support of this year’s 2021 More Than Pink Walk® walk to end breast cancer taking place in November.

ABOUT SUSAN G. KOMEN SAN DIEGO

In San Diego, six women a day are diagnosed with breast cancer and unfortunately one woman a day passes away from this disease. However, we know early detection and effective treatment provide the best chance of survival from breast cancer. And that’s what our work at Susan G. Komen San Diego is all about.

Komen San Diego provides free mammograms, biopsies, ultrasounds, care coordination, education and financial assistance for breast cancer patients’ most critical needs during treatment. Susan G. Komen is the largest nonprofit funder of breast cancer research outside of the U.S. government and much of that investment has been awarded to scientists in San Diego. Nearly 70 percent of our research investment is focused on metastatic disease. We’re not waiting for a cure. We’re moving toward the cures every day. When is Now.
