Susan G. Komen will host its “More Than Pink” Walk on Oct. 1 to raise money for programs that directly support people going through breast cancer now, and remove barriers to quality and timely care. The event takes place at the Buffalo Riverworks. Registration is now open.

“More than 1,500 Western New Yorkers contact Komen every month, needing support, information about breast cancer and clinical trials or financial assistance to pay their bills,” said Elizabeth Webster, development manager of Upstate New York at Susan G. Komen. “Funds raised from the ‘More Than Pink’ Walk ensure Komen can continue to support our community and meet the needs of patients now and remove barriers to their care.”

The event begins at 8 a.m. Leading off is the opening of Hope Village. A “Pathway of Hope” ceremony follows at 9 a.m., with the walk commencing at 9:15 a.m. A post-race party is slated for noon.
