Grand Rapids hotels are taking action to end breast cancer - and you can help! Komen logo

When you book one of the Experience Pink hotel packages below, your hotel will donate $5 to the Susan G. Komen of West Michigan. This pink-thinking charity works tirelessly "for the cure" - an end to breast cancer.

February is the month of love - Valentine's Day is Friday the 14th. A Grand Rapids getaway is a great way to show the love for all the women in your life.

February fills up fast - book your package today!

Fall in love with GR ArtsImagine Life Without Breast Cancer

That's the focus of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure. It's the world's largest grassroots network of cancer survivors and activists. And it's played a critical role in almost every major advance in breast cancer over the past 28 years.

75% of the funds raised by our local Komen affiliate stay right here in West Michigan, helping women who need it the most. It's a vital service for the 1 in 8 women who will be diagnosed with breast cancer during her lifetime.

Every 74 seconds, somewhere in the world, someone dies from breast cancer. You can use your next 74 seconds to help change that. Learn more at komenwestmichigan.org.
