Komen for the Cure's presence at the GOP convention is centered around Komen on the Go(TM), a mobile experience that educates and engages people of all ages in the breast cancer movement where they live, work and play. The Komen on the Go cruiser will be located at the Minneapolis Convention Center as part of the host committee's CivicFest. Komen on the Go will arrive at CivicFest on Sunday, Aug. 31, following their appearance in Denver for the Democratic National Convention.

The Komen Advocacy Alliance is partnering with Komen on the Go to challenge candidates to make the fight against cancer a national priority.
