Susan G. Komen for the Cure(R) Encourages Nation to 'Go Passionately Pink' by Donning Pink, Donating Funds to End Breast Cancer Forever
Date:5/15/2008

more than 8,000 businesses, schools, places of worship and social organizations went Passionately Pink for the Cure and generated nearly $4 million which has been invested in breast cancer research and community-based breast health programs. This year, Komen hopes to raise $4.5 million through the program to support its promise to save lives and end breast cancer forever.

Seventy-five percent of donations received through Passionately Pink for the Cure will go toward research to find the cures for breast cancer, and the remaining 25 percent will support breast cancer education, screening and treatment programs at the local level.

Actresses Cynthia Nixon and Gabrielle Union have recently joined Susan G. Komen for the Cure as ambassadors in the breast cancer movement. Both women will go Passionately Pink alongside thousands who plan to participate this year.

"As the daughter of a breast cancer survivor and a breast cancer survivor myself, I have experienced the disease from both sides. I will do whatever it takes to end this disease," Cynthia Nixon said. "Going Passionately Pink is just one way I am playing my part in ending breast cancer."

Passionately Pink for the Cure is a fun, simple way for anyone and everyone to get involved in the breast cancer movement. Pick your pink. Play your part. End breast cancer forever.
