I signed up today to walk in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Denver this coming Sunday, October 4th. I have participated many times before and I am always amazed how many people are involved in Denver – more on one day than all the people in Bangor, Maine, the small city near where I grew up!
“The Denver Metropolitan Affiliate of Susan G Komen for the Cure was founded in 1994, the year after the first Komen Denver Race for the Cure, to carry out the promise of our National organization — to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. The Affiliate continually strives to meet this promise through three core activities — education, fundraising and grant making.”
It is inspiring to see the level of support and all the pink ribbons displayed during October by so many businesses. The growth has been amazing and really has raised the awareness and resources available to address breast cancer in ways that could never have happened otherwise. What can you do?
