Time for the 2015 Race for the Cure...and Row for the Cure!
The Row will be on October 25th at Mission Bay, and the Race is going to be held this year on Sunday, November 1, 2015 at Balboa Park. To help me raise funds to support local women, men and families going through the breast cancer navigation and treatment challenge, you can do the following:
Donate to me or to my team, Team Chest Nuts as a sponsor to Row/Race for the Cure
Sign up for the Row for the Cure Sun Oct 25
Sign up for the Race for the Cure Sun Nov 1st
Participate in one or both of the above to support our efforts to support Susan G. Komen San Diego. 75% of all funds raised during Race for the Cure events stay in San Diego to support under-served women who need screenings, treatment, and other assistance during surgery, chemo, radiation, and recovery. In San Diego County, 2 of 5 women can not afford, or have the insurance to get, a potentially life-saving mammogram, and when cancer is found in its earliest stages, it has a 99% cure rate.
Please help in any way you are able - I would love to have you participate!
The key to survival is early detection. Three simple steps for early detection are regular mammograms, clinical exams and breast self-exams. And, remember, breast cancer affects more than just the patient; friends and family need support too. We are in tough economic times, but it is during times like this that women are under- or uninsured and need the help of organizations like Susan G. Komen.
We Will Find the Cure!
