Dear Friends,

2002 Komen National Race for the Cure JOIN OUR TEAM! & Save the Date!

The 2002 Komen Race for the Cure will take place on Saturday, June 1st, 2002. This annual 5K Walk/Run is sponsored by the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, a non-profit organization that raises money for breast cancer research, treatment, screening and education. The proceeds from this event help to fund research, outreach and treatments programs to fuel the fight against breast cancer, and efforts to eradicate breast cancer as a life-threatening disease.

If you participated in the Race last year, by now you will have received a reminder, and your Race registration form. If you did not, now is a very good time to consider participating in the World’s Largest 5K.
