Komen San Antonio Race for the Cure – Susan G. Komen for the Cure

I’m not running in The Race for the Cure.  In fact, I am not even walking in it.

But I registered for it today – because it’s important, and it’s a good investment.  I have a daughter.  I want this disease eradicated.

We have one of the larger races in the country here.  I’m glad I can do my part, even if I won’t actually be taking part.


In 2006, the San Antonio Race for the Cure attracted more than 27,000 participants and raised more than $1 million. Up to 75% of the affiliate’s net income stays in the San Antonio community, funding local breast cancer treatment, screening and education projects. The remaining money goes to into the Susan G. Komen for the Cure program, raising monies for research worldwide.

  1. @Paul – good point. I knew that, but it wasn’t a driving factor in me getting involved (my daughter, of course, was!)

    But it is important that people know this isn’t a “woman only disease”

  2. Good for you! I commend you for that gesture.

    Here’s a nice opportunity for me to ‘educate’:
    Breast cancer is not restricted to women only!

    Granted, it is much more common in women (1 man for every 140 women diagnosed with it), but still…

    I know this, because I had an uncle who died from breast cancer.


  1. […] I did a breast exam.  No lumps.  But thanks Paul for making me think about things like this.  Even with hardly any breast tissue, I could get breast […]
