Welcome to the 2019 Susan G. Komen
Kansas & Western Missouri BigWigs Campaign
The Susan G. Komen Kansas & Western Missouri BigWigs campaign engages local corporate and community leaders as representatives in the fight against breast cancer. During the multi-week campaign (Giving Tuesday through mid-February), each BigWig will raise or give a minimum of $1,500, which will be used to ensure access to essential breast health services and education programs and support research to find the cures for breast cancer. Through this program, 75% of funds raised remain in local communities to help fund local breast cancer initiatives. 25% of the funds support scientific research. 100% of funds work to save lives and end breast cancer forever. Komen Kansas & Western Missouri have invested more than $27.5 million in their 30 years working for the communities they serve in Kansas & Missouri.
