The Committee

The Komen Young Professionals (KYP) committee is a new generation of young and aspiring professional men and women engaged in a culture of philanthropy to support the fight to end breast cancer forever.

Columbus_SGK.jpg-500x400As part of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Columbus affiliate, our focus is to increase breast cancer awareness and breast health among young men and women. We aim to raise funds in support of breast cancer research, education, screening and treatment services through fun, philanthropic events, which allow members to socialize, network and make a significant impact in the community.


KYP serves primarily through fundraising for Komen Columbus. This is done using one signature event each year, as well as several other smaller events throughout the year. We work to find event sponsors who will provide their services in the form of food, beverages, or activities, all in an effort to give all of our proceeds to Komen Columbus.


The most effective way to join KYP is to attend one of our events. Attending an event provides you and a friend with a memory, while also providing Komen with a donation towards their fight to end breast cancer. In addition to attending events, the Komen Young Professionals Committee meets every other month at a local restaurant, where we brainstorm our latest goals toward serving Komen.
