Pink Power Luncheon

October 23, 2020 | Noon - 1 p.m. 

Co-Sponsored by Susan G. Komen Kansas & Western Missouri

The 11th Annual Pink Power Luncheon went virtual in 2020 due to COVID-19. We missed getting together for lunch, but enjoyed seeing everyone via Zoom. We had great participation and a fantastic keynote speaker! You can watch a highlight video on YouTube below.

Our keynote speaker was Liz Benditt, a four-time cancer survivor, the president of Balm Box, and a lecturer for the KU School of Business. Ms. Benditt, a Komen Kansas & Western Missouri Woman of Action, gave the presentation, "The Finish Line is the Starting Line." She shared her inspirational story of going from cancer patient to "cancer-preneur" and demonstrated that the finish line does not have to be the end of the journey; it can represent a new beginning. 

Also presenting briefly were representatives of Kansas's Early Detection Works program.
