Power of the Promise

Posted: Thursday, April 20, 2017 by: Desmond Strooh | Category: Community Interest

Susan G. Komen Northwest Ohio® will host breast cancer activist Polly Letofsky at its Power of the Promise fundraising event on April 27, 2017 from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. at The Premier.

Polly was the first American woman to walk around the world. It took her five years to walk 15,000 miles across 22 countries on four continents, and she did it all while raising money for breast cancer research and raising awareness about breast cancer.

Before Polly’s comments, Mary Westphal, executive director of Susan G. Komen Northwest Ohio, will announce the 2017-2018 community grant recipients. These grants provide breast cancer and breast health services to nearly 10,000 uninsured and underinsured women and men in Northwest Ohio.

Jan Ruma, vice president at Hospital Council of Northwest Ohio, will speak about how the organization, and the other grantees, use Komen funds to save lives in our 24-county service area.

Tickets are $60 per person, tables set for 10. Go to http://bit.ly/PowerOfThePromise or call 419-724-2873.
