Getting all dolled up and celebrating our survivorship is really special.” Last year’s Project Pink reached 300 attendees who contributed to raising over $20,000 to help local women fighting breast cancer and fund global research. Thanks to events like Project Pink, Komen Central Indiana has awarded more than $15 million in community grants to local organizations that deliver breast health services.
