BENEFITING: Susan G. Komen New England
EVENT DATE: May 09, 2015
Because we all know someone who has been affected by Breast Cancer we need a #PinkWarrior to fight for them. I fight for my aunt, My Emoe, Kyung Nim Mraz, who passed away on Mother's Day, May 9, 2004, after a long battle with cancer. Her first primary diagnosis was breast cancer. So I choose to be her #PinkWarrior. Please join this great cause on the anniversary of her passing as we celebrate her life and help race for a cure to wipe out Breast Cancer so that no one else has to be affected.
Race for the Cure Fairfield County celebrates its third anniversary in 2015. Through funds raised by our Race participants, Komen Connecticut has contributed to funding more than $23 million in breast cancer research, local education, screening and treatment. Every dollar raised by Race for the Cure makes a lasting impact in the fight against breast cancer.
Did you know that Connecticut has the HIGHEST incidence of breast cancer in the U.S. with over 3,000 Connecticut women diagnosed annually? Komen Connecticut needs YOU as a part of our crusade to end breast cancer forever. Your fundraising efforts will help save the lives of Connecticut women.
More treatment. More research. More survivors. A cure.
