2019 MTP Walk - register now banner

Early Bird Discount Ends 2.14.19!

You may have heard, we've been hard at work creating the next evolution in the history of the Race for the Cure® series – and the next chapter begins here! This spring, on Saturday, May 11, we will be one of 26 locations across the country premiering the Susan G. Komen MORE THAN PINK Walk™!

Much of what you have come to love about the Race will continue with the MORE THAN PINK Walk, but with a fresh, new look and experience that is sure to energize our community around the lifesaving work your support makes possible. This new, more interactive format will help us build a greater sense of community among participants. And, by eliminating the separate timed run, we will significantly reduce event expenses allowing us to maximize the funds that go toward our lifesaving work.

We will introduce you to our new Komen mission pillars - research + care + community + action - the areas where Komen makes an impact in the fight against breast cancer. We hope you will leave the event with a clear knowledge of how your support helps us save lives from breast cancer.

Join us for the 2019 Komen Central Virginia MORE THAN PINK Walk™ on Saturday May 11.
