Monday November 6, 2017
This Saturday, Gehan Homes participated in The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure®. This was our team’s third year in a row participating. We had a great time bonding as a group, while raising money that will be allocated to the Komen mission. We were honored to walk in honor of survivors and in remembrance of those who have lost their fight.
The Komen race series is the world’s largest, most successful fundraising and education event for breast cancer. It includes more than 140 events on four continents, with over one million participants.
100 percent of the net proceeds are allocated to the mission:
75 percent of the net income stays within the community to help fund local programs offering breast health education and breast cancer screening and treatment.
The remaining 25 percent goes toward Susan G. Komen® Research and Training Grants program.
In addition to raising funds for the breast cancer movement, Race for the Cure® also increases awareness, celebrates breast cancer survivorship and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease. Gehan Homes is a proud partner of Susan G. Komen. Check out our Susan G. Komen page: https://ww5.komen.org/Gehan-Homes/
