Susan G. Komen cancer walk axed in Boston

6 other cities out; fewer taking part

WASHINGTON — The Susan G. Komen foundation is canceling its signature three-day walk in Washington, D.C., and six other cities, including Boston, next year, the organization announced.

People familiar with the decision-making said the drop in participation in Komen races and walks was a factor. The organization posted a note to members on its Facebook page, saying its three-day event would not be returning in 2014 to Arizona, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Tampa Bay, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C.
