Power of the Promise
Thank you to everyone who attended the Power of the Promise!
More than 300 people attended the evening to celebrate and Support the work of Susan G. Komen Northwest Ohio at our annual Power of the Promise event!
Attendees learned about how Susan G. Komen of Northwest Ohio is saving lives every day in our 24-county service area. They also discovered how we support critical breast cancer research and work toward our mission to create a world without breast cancer.
We were honored to have Polly Letofsky as our guest speaker. Polly was the first American woman to walk around the world. It took Polly 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.
Polly gave us just the right blend of exciting stories and serious talk about overcoming challenges.
Her story is evidence that you can do so much more than you think is possible, no matter who you are, how old you are, and what resources you have. It’s was a memorable evening and we thank all those who attended and supported Susan G. Komen Northwest Ohio.
