“Making Strides Against Breast Cancer unites us all to walk together as the
most powerful force to end breast cancer,” said Shari Henning, American Cancer
Society, Senior Vice President. “We are so thankful to presenting sponsor
Kohl's Cares and the thousands of Making Strides walkers and supporters who
are helping our efforts to finish the fight and make this cancer’s last
century.”

In an effort to illustrate the impact breast cancer has in the state of
Wisconsin, Kohl’s Department Stores erected a visual representation of the
estimated 4,490 Wisconsin women who will be diagnosed with breast cancer in
2013 on the south lawn of the Milwaukee Art Museum. The installation was
designed to encourage support and awareness of the cause, as well as
demonstrate Kohl’s ongoing commitment to the fight against breast cancer.

“Kohl’s is proud to have served as the presenting sponsor of the 2013 Making
Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in Milwaukee as we continue our partnership
with the American Cancer Society which helps provide valuable information and
resources to local women battling breast cancer,” said Kevin Mansell, Kohl’s
chairman, president and chief executive officer. “We know breast cancer has
impacted thousands of families across the state and as a company, we are
passionate about making a true difference in the fight against breast cancer
and providing support to those when they need it most.”

Kohl’s Cares’ role as the local presenting sponsor of the Making Strides
Against Breast Cancer walk is just one component of the company’s investment
in the fight against breast cancer. Since 2010, Kohl’s has donated nearly $5
million to the American Cancer Society for programs and resources designed to
help the women of Wisconsin fight this invasive disease. The donation, which
supports breast cancer research, education and patient-assistance programs,
represents the largest corporate gift ever made to the American Cancer Society
Midwest Division.

Kohl’s partnership with the American Cancer Society builds upon Kohl’s long
history of charitable involvement in the communities it serves. Since 2000,
Kohl’s and the Kohl’s Cares program have combined to give more than $55
million to support charitable initiatives in the metro-Milwaukee area. For

Flagship sponsors of this year’s Milwaukee Making Strides included Columbia
St. Mary’s, Educated Solutions Corp, Extendicare, Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren
s.c., and Rockwell Automation. Event media sponsors were Fox 6 WITI-TV and
Clear Channel Radio stations V100.7 WKKV, FM.106.1 WMIL, and 97.3 Radio Now
WRNW.
