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.
