Mohawk Supports Susan G. Komen for 17th Year

Calhoun, GA August 20, 2018-Mohawk continues its fight against breast cancer with its support of the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk by donating more than 7,000 SmartCushion pads to comfort this year’s walkers and crew members.

The company also hosts the “Mohawk Mile,” a bright pink carpeted footpath to the finish line filled with Mohawk residential and commercial team members, retail partners and customers urging walkers on to success.

Mohawk became involved with the 3-Day Walk in 2015, when it provided 800 pieces of soft, durable and eco-friendly SmartCushion to place under the sleeping bags of weary walkers and crew in the Philadelphia walk. Today Mohawk supports the three-day, 60-mile walk in all seven participating cities: Michigan, Twin Cities in Minnesota, Seattle, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Dallas/Ft. Worth and San Diego. 

At the end of each 3-Day, Mohawk ReCover is on the scene to ensure each piece of SmartCushion is recycled. Since its inception in 2006, ReCover has diverted more than 100 million pounds from landfills. In 2017, Mohawk recycled 31,020 pounds of cushion at 3-Day events.

Mohawk was named a 2017 “Rising Star” partner by Susan G. Komen because each year since 2001 it has strengthened its commitment to Komen’s mission by expanding its programs and exploring new ways to engage with the organization.
