The mission of Susan G. Komen is to eradicate breast cancer as a life-threatening disease by advancing research, education, screening, and treatment.

We do this by working with the community and organizing events like the Komen Rally for the Cure in Sioux Falls, SD. We use the money that is raised to sponsor education, screening, and treatment support programs throughout our service area. Our efforts reach women and men of all ages, ethnicities, educational backgrounds, and demographic locations.

We at Bakker Crossing are honored to host this event and support the cause. We hope to see you here on August 15th!

If you are planning on being a part of the event please email so we know how many people to prepare food for. Thank you!
