North Bend Premium Outlets today announced its Spring 2018 More Than Pink movement in support of Susan G. Komen and the fight against breast cancer.

As part of its pledge to donate at least $1 million each year in 2017 and 2018, more than 170 participating Simon Malls, The Mills and Premium Outlets nationwide will once again be participating in a range of fundraising activities during the months of April and May.

“We are thrilled to launch our Spring 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 Enna Allen, Simon’s vice president of Brand Management.

From April 14 to May 20, visitors to North Bend Premium Outlets will be able to participate in a variety of programs to help support Susan G. Komen.

In exchange for a $10 donation to Susan G. Komen, shoppers will receive a Discount Pass, available at the Mall Office at participating centers, providing 25 percent off one item at participating retailers. All Discount Pass donations go to Susan G. Komen.

Customers can purchase a More Than Pink Visa Giftcard at Guest Services or the Mall office. Simon will donate $1 for each More Than Pink Giftcard sold to Susan G. Komen. The giftcard is available for purchase year-round.

Race for The Cure events will take place across the U.S. with local Simon teams participating to support the local Susan G. Komen Affiliates. Simon encourages shoppers to join in by locating and registering for an event near them by visiting www.raceforthecure.org/Simon
