Susan G. Komen Foundation
Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® is the world’s largest and most successful education and fundraising event for breast cancer ever created. The event raises significant funds and awareness for the breast cancer movement, celebrates breast cancer survivorship and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease.
Activists are protesting an oil and gas firm’s $100,000 donation to a major breast cancer advocacy group.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and many local organizations are doing their part to educate people about the disease. That includes the Rivers Casino.
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.
