Volunteer with Komen Foundation

April 5, 2011, Volume 57, No. 28

The Philadelphia Affiliate of Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® has been organizing the Susan G. Komen Philadelphia Race for the Cure® every Mother’s Day for the past 21 years, raising millions of dollars annually to advance the breast cancer movement locally and globally. This includes initiatives such as: helping to fund innovative scientific research, providing free educational outreach events for the community, and funding grants that support local breast cancer screening, treatment, education, outreach, and support programs. On May 8, more than 40,000 participants, over 80,000 spectators and at least 1,000 volunteers will gather at Eakins Oval, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, to be a part of the fight against breast cancer. The Philadelphia Race for the Cure brings all types of people together who have been touched by breast cancer in some way, and it has become an annual tradition for people in our community and far beyond. The yearly success of the Race brings us one step closer to our mission: ending breast cancer forever. Volunteer by contacting me at sammapp@pobox.upenn.edu
