Tyson Foods Proudly Supports Komen Ozark for the 18th Year with $30,000 Gift

Since 1998 Komen Ozark has been fighting to support local men and women in our area and Tyson Foods has been there every step of the way. Serving as the Founding Sponsor since the Inaugural Race for the Cure in 1999, Tyson Foods has given over $350,000 to Komen Ozark to help in the fight against breast cancer.

Thanks to partners like Tyson, Komen Ozark has been able to give over $9.5 million back to our local community and nearly $3 million to research to find the cures. The Ozark Affiliate is able to make an impact on these families by funding breast health screening, education and treatment services for those uninsured and underinsured members of the local community. Without partners like Tyson Foods Komen Ozark and many others could not impact local lives in the same capacity. From monetary support and in-kind donations, to the volunteer efforts of many Tyson team members, Tyson Foods has been there to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer.

“Komen Ozark is so thankful for the continued support of Tyson Foods.  Without our corporate partners, we’d never be able to do what we do – provide breast cancer education, screening and treatment to thousands of local women and men and to also fund breast cancer research. Tyson’s generosity and tireless efforts allow us to continue striving to save lives and end breast cancer forever.” Lauren Marquette, Executive Director, Komen Ozark Affiliate.
