As Komen Houston YPC continues to grow each year, we want to remind you of our focus as the leader in the breast cancer movement...  

  • YPC is comprised of rising young men and women who are engaging a new generation in the culture of philanthropy to achieve our vision of a life without breast cancer.
  • YPC is dedicated to promoting breast cancer awareness, raising funds through innovative programs and providing volunteer support. 
  • YPC provides young professionals a chance to socialize, network and most importantly make a significant impact in the community.  

In addition to networking and social events, here are last year’s fundraising opportunities that YPC provided to its members as a way to make an impact:

  • Sunday Funday Bingo – Raised over $2,000 dollars
  • Party in Pink at Hotel Zaza –Raised over $12,000 dollars
  • YPC Race Team for the Annual Komen Houston Race for the Cure® – Raised over $6,000

The funds raised through these events allow Komen Houston to fund life-saving breast cancer research, education, screening and treatment programs in our local communities.  

Important fact you should know…

  • This year, 3,700 people will be diagnosed with breast cancer in Houston and 600 of those will die
