Komen holds training sessions

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- They are teaching others how to get much needed money to fight breast cancer.

The Lowcountry Komen affiliate is holding two work shops for any organizations that want to apply to the non profit for grants.

The first was Wednesday at the Trident Community Center in North Charleston. Those who took part got tips on how to apply, as well as updates on the latest research.

"Turn out was great far better than we expected. We expect to see a number of grants written and that's only going to help. The funds being raised will go for the best use," said Jennifer Fiorini, a board member for Komen.

The next workshop will be held September 20th at the Coastal Carolina University in Conway.
