Race for a Cure — We Have to Beat Breast Cancer

susan-g-komen-race-cureYou know I hate cancer.  No one wants to be in the club, yet every day someone else is initiated without a request.

It has been three years since we had our first Race for the Cure team for the Susan G. Komen event in Akron. Well, I have re-signed up our ST8PACS team on the site and registered to participate in the 5K walk. This year’s event will be Saturday, July 23 at Canal Park.

Because every minute someone dies of breast cancer.

Breast cancer knows no boundaries—be it age, gender, socio-economic, or geographic location.

Consider going to http://neohio.info-komen.org to register and join the ST8PACS team by contributing.

Thank you.
