The annual Susan G. Komen San Diego 3-day walk, which wound its way through coastal neighborhoods over the weekend, announced Sunday night that it had raised over $6.5 million through pledges secured by 2,500 participants.

“We are so thankful for San Diego’s continued support of our mission to end breast cancer,” said Sheri Phillips, the Komen organizations’ national spokesperson in a release. The organization says 75 percent of the money raised through its series of 14 walks around the country goes into research or “large public outreach programs,” with the remainder going to local community outreach.

The organization has already begun soliciting sponsors and participants for next year’s San Diego event, which will be held from November 15-17, 2013.

A previous piece on this (11/17/12 by Mercy Baron) stated the 3500 walkers, were required to raise $2400.00 each. Is this possible? That is over $8 mil. And only $240,000 stays in SD?
