This Race season we highlight, celebrate, and honor those who go beyond merely wearing a pink ribbon. They are our doers, our everyday heroes, our fighters, our boots on the ground. They are fighting for their lives. They are healing. They are raising awareness.  They are lending a helping hand.  They are making it financially possible to find the cures and deliver life-saving breast health resources to the underserved.  Stay tuned each month to see the faces of Komen Dallas County, and we challenge you to join their ranks.  They are.  Are you?  Click Here to meet one of our devoted volunteers Melanie Owen, she has volunteered with the Dallas affiliate for 12 years!
