Monday, Susan G. Komen Greater Fort Worth announced it has moved its third annual More Than Pink Walk from April 25 to Oct. 3, 2020. The event is scheduled for Clearfork.
“We have a big participant group whose immune systems have been impacted by cancer, including some who are currently going through cancer treatment, and we don’t want to take any chances,” Komen Greater Fort Worth Executive Director Tracey Boyes said. “Our choices will be well-informed by the latest projections and recommendations guided by local and national health officials.”
The annual walk is the affiliate’s largest fundraiser of the year. It helps fund services to the local community, as well as research.
“As we move forward, we will remain vigilant and mindful of those we serve, considering the increased risk for many in the Komen community,” Boyes said.
