Adrienne Harlow, a breast cancer survivor, is excited to model for her 4th year: “Project Pink is my favorite Komen event. Everyone involved truly enjoys it, especially the survivors! Getting all dolled up and celebrating our survivorship is really special.”

Last year’s Project Pink reached 300 attendees who contributed to raising over $20,000 to help local women fighting breast cancer and fund global research. Thanks to events like Project Pink, Komen Central Indiana has awarded more than $15 million in community grants to local organizations that deliver breast health services. These breast health programs are providing mammograms, clinical breast exams, treatment assistance, survivor support, education and community outreach to more than 20,000 underserved women and men per year.
