About the Race
The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation is a non-profit organization that raises money for breast cancer research, treatment, screening and education. The Komen National Race for the Cure is an annual fund raising event to support the efforts to eradicate breast cancer as a life-threatening disease. Proceeds from this event help to fund research, outreach and treatments programs to fuel the fight against breast cancer. Malawians in Washington have participated in this event for 4 years now, each year showing more and more participation from the community. It is time again to start planning, training, preparing for the 2001 Race for the Cure. I hope you will join the team.
