Atlanta-area Simon Centers team up with Susan G. Komen® to fight breast cancer during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Funds raised at Lenox Square, Mall of Georgia, North Georgia Premium Outlets, Phipps Plaza and Town Center at Cobb will go towards the goal of reducing breast cancer deaths

Wednesday, October 3, 2018 — ATLANTA (October 3, 2018) – Atlanta-area Simon centers, including Lenox Square, Mall of Georgia, North Georgia Premium Outlets, Phipps Plaza and Town Center at Cobb, today announced their fall 2018 campaign in support of Susan G. Komen and the fight against breast cancer, a disease that kills more than 41,000 people in the U.S. each year. The Atlanta-area centers are owned and operated by Simon, a global leader in premier shopping, dining, entertainment and mixed-use destinations. More than 150 Simon Malls, The Mills and Premium Outlets nationwide will be participating in a range of activities during October.

Through this campaign, Simon is helping support Komen’s work to save lives and reach its ‘Bold Goal’ of reducing the current number of breast cancer deaths by 50 percent in the U.S. by 2026. Simon is joining the fight against breast cancer by starting a national conversation and challenging people to help create a renewed movement in the fight against breast cancer.

“We are thrilled to launch our fall 2018 ‘More Than Pink initiatives’ and have been overwhelmed by the ongoing positive support this movement has garnered with our shoppers, retailers and employees to support Susan G. Komen in its tireless efforts to reduce breast cancer deaths,” said Randall Jackson, director of marketing and business development for North Georgia Premium Outlets on behalf of the Atlanta-area Simon centers.
