Susan G. Komen Foundation Donation
In 2017 Lakeway AC & Heating was honored to be partner with the Susan G. Komen Foundation in the fight against breast cancer. A percentage of each paying invoice was donated to the Komen Foundation at the end of every month.
Susan G. Komen® Austin is an Austin-based non-profit committed to saving lives locally and fighting breast cancer globally. Komen Austin is the only local breast cancer organization attacking the disease on all fronts – education, screening, treatment, follow-up care, survivorship support, advocacy, and research. The organization serves the women and men in the city’s five-county area battling breast cancer by removing barriers to care for the uninsured and underinsured. Of the funds raised annually, Komen Austin invests up to 75 percent into local community health care grants and educational initiatives; the remaining 25 percent is invested into global research studies to find the cures for breast cancer.
Since 1999 Komen Austin has invested more than $11 million into breast health services and educational efforts in Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Travis, and Williamson counties. Additionally, over $5 million has been raised to fund global research studies to find the cures for breast cancer. Komen Austin encourages the local community to help save lives and end breast cancer forever by participating in year-round fundraising efforts and our signature events – the Susan G. Komen® Austin Race for the Cure and the annual Pink! Party.
