About Us

Susan G. Komen El Paso is dedicated to combating breast cancer at every front. Up to 75 percent of Komen El Paso’s net income goes toward funding grants to local hospitals and community organizations that provide breast health education and breast cancer screening and treatment programs for medically underserved women. The remaining net income (a minimum of 25 percent) supports the national Komen Grants Program, which funds groundbreaking breast cancer research, meritorious awards and educational and scientific programs around the world.

The Komen El Paso service area covers all of El Paso County. Thanks to the thousands of people who participant in the Komen El Paso Race for the Cure and other Komen El Paso events each year, dedicated corporate partners and generous donors, Komen El Paso is playing a vital role in fighting breast cancer in our community.
