With a Workforce and Customer Base That’s Nearly 90 Percent Women, Breast Cancer is an Issue Close to Many of Us.
For more than 20 years, we have invited associates and their guests to participate in the Columbus and New York City Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure events. We are proud to have the world’s largest Race for the Cure business team over the last 10 years, donating nearly $5 million to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and the American Cancer Society to fund breast cancer research, education, screening and treatment. Together we hope to empower survivors and fund treatments and cures.
Victoria’s Secret has donated $20 million to innovative cancer research over the last 12 years through its partnership with Pelotonia. 100% of funds raised for the Pelotonia community are invested in a variety of initiatives annually, summarized best by the following priorities:
- Enhanced Treatments and Therapies: Pelotonia dollars help attract and retain the best talent in cancer research to explore high-impact breakthroughs that make cancer treatment less toxic and more effective.
- The Next Generation of Research Talent: Pelotonia's Fellowship Program empowers young innovators across academic fields and disciplines to pursue a career in cancer research.
- Immuno-Oncology: Pelotonia pioneered a landmark investment to launch the Pelotonia Institute for Immuno- Oncology.
- Prevention and Early Diagnosis: Pelotonia funds initiatives that aim to save lives before cancer strikes through prevention and early detection methods.
We are proud of our associates’ participation, and we are equally proud to leverage our financial contributions with their volunteer efforts. Together we hope to empower survivors and help find a cure.
