Komen Chicago Associate Board

Komen Chicago’s mission is to save lives by meeting the most critical needs in our communities and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer. The Komen Chicago Associate Board is a group of rising young professionals whose goal supports the overall mission and activities of the organization, specifically within the younger generation of breast cancer warriors.

As ambassadors of Komen Chicago, active Associate Board members engage the community through volunteering, fundraising, networking and advocacy. They are dedicated to raising breast cancer awareness through educational efforts and creating unique social events. Donations and participation in the Associate Board events supports their goal.
