THE STORY:

Why Susan G. Komen?

Although I have not personally been diagnosed with breast cancer, I do know people close to me that have.  Some won their battle, and sadly some others did not.  Sara Sullivan was a high school friend and an amazing person who lost her battle to breast cancer.  The video shows her touching story and the legacy she left behind. 

I am very aware of the fact that cancer can strike any one of us at any time.  Any kind of cancer to me is terrifying, and it is sometimes shocking how fast it can take someone so close to you.  I had always heard about people participating in Race for the Cure but I never participated until my company, Venterra Realty, started to heavily promote the event as well as collect donations for Susan G. Komen.  Each year we come together as a company and design shirts, wear them on Fridays, and participate in the race.  My first year to participate was in 2009 and I can honestly say it was an amazing experience. 

I think the most touching part was at the end of the race when I started to see all the survivors running through the survivor lane.  I started to tear up thinking about the hardships they faced, and how they beat it!  I never realized how many people breast cancer affected, and how important it is to raise money for breast cancer research until that moment.  Now I encourage anyone and everyone who happens to stumble across my page to donate!  Even just $10 goes a very long way!!!  Breast cancer might not affect you now, but you never know when it could affect you or someone close to you.  Together we can fight breast cancer, and we can help in the fight for a cure!  So, thank you in advance for donating and God Bless!

Race for the Cure

Saturday, October 1st 2011 @ 8am

In 2010, 50 members of Team Venterra Raced for the Cure & raised $710 in Race sponsorships...just think if each person raised just $100 this year, we would raise $5,000 as a Team.

Help us meet our goal of $5,000 & donate today!  

Order a Venterra T-Shirt and join us for the race on October 1st, 2011!
