A few of our Hard Knox Rollergirls recently visited Susan G. Komen for the Cure of Knoxville in action at their Mobile Mammography Unit. We were excited to get the opportunity to learn about the organization and the amazing work that they do to prevent the preventable, treat the treatable and put and end to breast cancer.
The Mobile Mammography Unit that we were able to visit is one of the programs sponsored by Komen. It drives to different locations within a 1.5 hour radius from Knoxville and is open 6 days a week. It provides mammography for patients with and without insurance.
75% of the funds raised by Susan G. Komen of Knoxville stay here in East Tennessee to provide services to clients. 25% goes to headquarters for research purposes.
Susan G. Komen of Knoxville will be the featured non-profit for the Hard Knox Rollergirls "Pink in the Rink" season opener on Saturday, May 30 at the Knoxville Civic Coliseum. They will be collecting donations and providing information about their work. Stop by their table by the entrance into the arena to talk to them, and wear pink to show your support.
