Komen MORE THAN PINK Walk TM event, which along with a new name will include a fresh new look and experience focused on energizing the community around the lifesaving work Komen's supporters make possible. This new approach is based on input from participants across the country, data from nine pilot events in 2018, and by Komen's own observations from years as the leader in breast cancer walks. "Much of what you have come to love about the Race will continue with our new MORE THAN PINK Walk," said Executive Director, Lauren Marquette. "These changes are intended to increase people's connection to our work beyond breast cancer awareness. Together, we are more than pink–a community of people who want to do more for research, more for our communities, more for those among us who are living with breast cancer – including metastatic breast cancer – and more action to get us to cures." The biggest difference is that the MORE THAN PINK Walk will not have a separate timed run element, focusing instead on the vast majority of the event's participants who walk, rather than run, during the event historically. This change will create a greater sense of community among participants and will provide a more personalized, emotional experience for all who attend. "We're excited about this new chapter and look forward to seeing everyone walking on Saturday, April 27 for a day of community and hope in support of all those living with breast cancer, and those who have survived, and to remember and celebrate the lives we've lost to the disease," added Marquette.
