From Suzee Finlayson:
As an advocate and survivor I was lucky and have NED (no evidence of disease) status as of 2017. As a runner and bike enthusuaist Komen gave me a tool to give back to all women in my area and beyond that are effected after me.
I ran my first running Komen Race for the Cure NENY in 2009 three weeks after finishing 5 months of treatment including surgery, chemotherapy and adjuvent hormal therapy and donated passionately with a team. Every year since I have run this race and now I am creating a bike event through my love of riding to give back even more.
Please JOIN OUR TEAM OR DONATE!
All donations will go to the Susan G Komen NENY which gives back to people in our local communities and upstate counties, and to national research.

13th Annual Tour of the Battenkill / Prestacycle Tour for Pink

Susan G. Komen Foundation
In 1980, Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan, that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became the Susan G. Komen®organization and the beginning of a global movement. What was started with $200 and a shoebox full of potential donor names has now grown into the world’s largest nonprofit source of funding for the fight against breast cancer. To date, we’ve invested more than $2.6 billion in groundbreaking research, community health outreach, advocacy and programs in more than 60 countries. Our efforts helped reduce death rates from breast cancer by 37 percent between 1990-2013 and we won’t stop until our promise is fulfilled.
HOW WE'RE HELPING
Susan G. Komen is the ONLY organization that addresses breast cancer on multiple fronts such as research, community health, global outreach and public policy initiatives in order to make the biggest impact against this disease.
