Komen on the Creeper – The Event
We are excited to announce our first inaugural, 15-mile walk set to kick off along the Virginia Creeper Trail in Abingdon, Virginia this fall. In 2016, Susan G.

The Susan G. Komen Blue Ridge Affiliate invites you to join the movement and take a stand against breast cancer by fundraising and walking with us in Abingdon this October. Proceeds from this event stay local and will directly fund projects that bring resources to the cities and counties of our service area who need it most.
