Continue the Mother’s Day Celebration with Race for the Cure
To continue our support for research on breast cancer and breast cancer patients, we want to take the opportunity to share Susan G. Komen’s Race for the Cure this Saturday, May 20th in Downtown Columbus.
Susan G. Komen was founded by Nancy G. Brinker in 1982 after her sister Susan passed away two years prior. Currently, the organization is the world’s largest source of funding among nonprofits that are devoted to eliminate breast cancer. The organization has invested more than $ 2.9 billion in groundbreaking research, community health outreach, advocacy and programs in more than 60 countries. Their efforts helped in the reduction of breast cancer deaths by 38% between 1989-2014 and they aim to end breast cancer.
The race offers the options of a 5K-run and a 5K-walk. In the survival ceremony, you’ll find an amazing group of survivors who are supportive of each other and whose spirits drive us to contribute to the cause. If you can’t make it to the race this weekend, you can donate here. Every dollar will go towards breast cancer related research and initiatives, as well as assisting uninsured and underinsured patients. You can find more ways to get involved here.
