GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – One in 8 women develop invasive breast cancer in their life. Each year, Susan G Komen Michigan heads to the lakeshore in Muskegon for Stand Up for a Cure. Hundreds of survivors and supporters come together for the weekend event to paddleboard and raise crucial funds.
Proceeds from Stand Up for a Cure stay local in the West Michigan community to fund life-saving education, screening and treatments. This year, Muskegon helped raise the one- millionth dollar for the national Stand Up for a Cure mission, which benefits Susan G Komen.
