Barton Creek Square, The Domain, Lakeline Mall, Round Rock Premium Outlets and San Marcos Premium Outlets today announced the second year of a national engagement with Susan G.

More than 180 participating Simon Malls, The Mills® and Simon Premium Outlets® nationwide will encourage employees, retailers and shoppers to make a bigger, bolder impact in the fight against breast cancer by participating in Simon-sponsored activities throughout the month of October.
“Based on the success we experienced with the 2015 campaign, Simon is pleased to be increasing our pledge of support to Susan G. Komen in 2016,” said Krystal Zell, Senior Vice President of Field Marketing for Simon. “Through the More Than Pink movement, we are throwing our support behind Komen’s Bold Goal of reducing current breast cancer deaths in the U.S. by 50 percent in the next ten years.”
“We are delighted to see our partnership with the dedicated people at Simon grow stronger,” said Dr. Judy Salerno, Komen President and CEO. “Simon’s commitment to our More Than Pink movement helps move us closer to our mission and achieving our Bold Goal. The support of Simon and their customers will help us fund research, provide support to women, men and families suffering from breast cancer and play a key role in bringing our mission to people in communities across the country.”
