Race for the Cure
They walked arm-in-arm, hugging, crying and giving praise Sunday morning. Several thousand breast cancer survivors celebrated life during this year’s Susan G. Komen Race For The Cure.
The kickoff for this year’s Susan G. Komen Pittsburgh Race for the Cure was held tonight at Stage AE on the North Shore.
Every year on Mother’s Day, thousands of breast cancer survivors along with their families and friends gather for the annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. It’s a celebration of life that also raises money for breast cancer treatment and research.
In a little over a month, Pittsburgh has its 20th annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. “People are still very angry and I think we’ve lost trust,” admits Pittsburgh affiliate executive director Kathy Purcell.
While today is Mother’s Day, it’s also a day to get out and race for the cure. Earlier this week, Pittsburgh City Council declared today as “Komen Pittsburgh Race for the Cure Day.”
