Komen 'More Than Pink' walk set for April 25

Susan G. Komen Maryland is inviting walkers the 9th annual Delmarva MORE THAN PINK Walk on April 25, on Ocean City’s iconic boardwalk.

EASTON — Susan G. Komen Maryland, which also serves central and southern Delaware, has announced that the annual Delmarva MORE THAN PINK Walk will be held on April 25, on Ocean City’s iconic boardwalk, beginning at the inlet. Registration and fundraising for the event are now open at komenmd.org/delmarva.

This event, now in its ninth year, features a 1- or 3-mile walk on the boardwalk and an opportunity to celebrate survivors, honor those living with breast cancer and remember those lost while raising funds for local breast health programs and groundbreaking research. About 1,500 people usually attend the Walk.

Komen has invested more than $5 million in life-saving Eastern Shore breast health programs since 1993. Recently, Komen Maryland began serving Kent and Sussex counties in Delaware.

All participants and survivors will receive a complimentary Komen wrap to use in the opening ceremonies.

Participants must raise at least $100 to receive a walk T-shirt, except for survivors, who will receive a T-shirt regardless of fundraising.

“We are hoping that by eliminating the registration fee, we will encourage more people to attend the Walk and raise funds so that we can continue our life-saving work on the Shore,” said Karen Falk, Komen’s Delmarva development manager.
