Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure was this morning.
And what a beautiful morning it was. Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure is an event to raise awareness for breast cancer. It is a great fundraiser as well. Susan G. Komen is the largest nonprofit supporter of breast cancer research. This research is used to help find new treatments and cures for breast cancer. Komen’s work doesn’t just stop at research. They also provide funding to programs for the underserved, funding for programs that assist with child care and/or transportation for those undergoing treatment, and information and education for those impacted. They also provide support to survivors and their families. Komen believes every woman should have access to quality care. This year, the Komen Southern Nevada Race for the Cure was May 7 on Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas. There was a 5k run, 5k walk, and a mile walk. There was a little of something for everyone. CompassionCare Hospice of Las Vegas showed their support. We had a watering station during the race. You can make a difference. We included a gallery of the pictures from this morning. Thank you again Susan G. Komen for letting CompassionCare Hospice be a part of this great event.
