An excerpt from The Minnesota Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® Mission Statement page: "The Minnesota Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure®—along with those who generously support us with their talent, time and resources—is working to better the lives of those facing breast cancer in our community. We join more than 100,000 breast cancer survivors and activists around the globe as part of the world’s largest and most progressive grassroots network fighting breast cancer. Through events like the Susan G. Komen Twin Cities Race for the Cure®, we have raised approximately $30 million that has been awarded to Minnesota (non-profit) institutions for breast cancer awareness, education, outreach, screening, preliminary treatment and research. Up to 75% of net proceeds stay right here in Minnesota. A minimum of 25% of net funds are contributed to the national Susan G. Komen for the Cure® Grants Program for energizing science to find the cures. Join us by calling 952-746-1760 or visiting us online at www.komenminnesota.org."
