Did you know that women in the U.S. have a 12 percent chance of developing breast cancer? Did you know that there are also about 2.5 million breast cancer survivors alive in the U.S.?
Located at Gate 9, the bright pink Komen On the Go bus features a hands-on game wheel, graffiti memory wall and computer kiosks full of inspirational videos on breast cancer research and awareness.
Susan G. Komen for the Cure will be “going pink” for the cure today. Komen On the Go encourages fairgoers to pledge support for the cause and of course, wear pink.
The Komen On the Go bus will be distributing pink stickers, pink ribbon bags, informational handouts and shower cards. This evening, Komen will also honor breast cancer survivors by partnering with the King Action Sports stunt show for Survivor Night. The show begins at 5 p.m. in the Grandstand. We’ll see you there!
