In addition to serving as a sponsor, the PenFed Nebraska team is committed to raising over $6,000 for the walk event, and has already hosted several pre-event fundraisers, including a silent auction. Employees will also host a pancake breakfast to raise additional funds October 17.
Funds raised during the walk will go toward breast cancer screening, treatment support and education programs in the greater Omaha area and beyond.
The 2019 Komen Nebraska MORE THAN PINK Walk™ will take place Sunday, Oct. 6, at Baxter Arena in Omaha.
