The Post-Race Wrap-Up: Komen Congrats!

Komen Union Station Race NightThank you to all who were able to come out in the rain this weekend and make the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure such a wonderful success! It was totally worth getting soaked, wasn’t it?

 

Gatherings like these fill our hearts with hope and excitement. We ARE getting closer than ever before to reducing the toll that breast cancer takes. Komen is fantastic about providing support to those who face the battle against breast cancer. We couldn’t be more proud to be a part of their team!

 

We’d like to offer our thanks and appreciation to everyone who walked and ran, who handed out lip balm and water, who donated and cheered – everyone who made Sunday such a wonderful day.

 

Over 18,000 people participated – walking alongside 1,200 survivors! Approximately $1 million was raised! And just for kicks, SGK is applying for a Guinness World Record of more than 1,000 people in a selfie.

 

We are so happy – we believe a cure is in sight, as long as we keep striving. Thank you for all you do!
