As the biggest women’s U.S. golf tournament tees off, Susan G. Komen®, the world's leading breast cancer organization, is proud to partner with Tokio Marine HCC – Specialty Group (TMHCC), based in Wakefield, Massachusetts, a premier provider of specialized insurance products for the sports and entertainment industries, and Nelly Korda, the number one world ranked women’s golfer. This collaboration aims to support efforts to end breast cancer and bring vital resources to those affected by the disease during the premier women’s U.S. golf tournament, taking place from May 30 to June 2 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Every 12 minutes, a woman in the U.S. succumbs to breast cancer, a disease that disregards age, gender, socio-economic status or location. Experts suggest one-third of U.S. breast cancer deaths could be preventable with universal access to modern treatments. In alignment with this cause, TMHCC will donate $5,000 for every birdie and $10,000 for every eagle that Nelly Korda scores during the tournament, with a guaranteed minimum donation of $50,000. If Nelly achieves a career-best round, TMHCC will make an extraordinary donation of $1 million to Susan G. Komen.

“In keeping with our Good Company philosophy, we are so excited to spearhead this 3-way partnership. What better way to drive attention and donations to such a worthy cause than connecting the number one world ranked golfer playing at the biggest event of the year? Susan G. Komen and Nelly Korda have both been such pleasures to work with and in addition to our corporate donation, we can’t wait to tally all the donations tied to this wonderful charitable promotion,” said Tokio Marine HCC’s CEO Susan Rivera.

“Empowering women and celebrating their wins is such a meaningful part of our culture at Susan G. Komen. It’s been a joy to watch Nelly’s incredible golf career over the years, and we’re honored to partner with TMHCC for this momentous initiative. Thanks to the generosity of TMHCC and Ms. Korda, Komen can extend more services and financial assistance to patients nationwide, ultimately saving more lives from breast cancer,” said Paula Schneider, President & CEO of Susan G. Komen.
