FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FORT WORTH–Susan G. Komen Greater Fort Worth has announced that due to COVID-19, it has moved its third annual More Than Pink Walk from Saturday, April 25, 2020 to Saturday, October 3, 2020, at Clearfork.
“As we move forward, we will remain vigilant and mindful of those we serve, considering the increased risk for many in the Komen community,” Komen Greater Fort Worth Executive Director Tracey Boyes said. “We have a big participant group whose immune systems have been impacted by cancer, including some who are currently going through cancer treatment, and we don’t want to take any chances. Our choices will be well-informed by the latest projections and recommendations guided by local and national health officials.”
The annual walk is the affiliate’s largest fundraiser of the year, raising money to fund the services Komen grantees provide to the local community as well as the groundbreaking research Komen conducts.
