Community Impact

Susan G. Komen South Dakota is the local resource for women who need breast cancer screening, diagnostic and support services. Through annual events including the Race for the Cure and individual contributions, Komen South Dakota raises funds which enable women to detect and survive breast cancer.

Seventy-five percent of all funds raised by the Affiliate stay in our service area to fund breast health programs for women who would not otherwise have access to screening and treatment. Twenty-five percent of funds raised support the Susan G. Komen® Research Grants Program. Komen South Dakota has raised more than $1.4 million in local breast health and breast cancer awareness projects in our state and has received over $1 million in research funding in South Dakota.
