Whether you register to walk or run, if you indicate that you are a breast cancer survivor during registration you will receive a pink survivor t-shirt, hat and bib along with your Race t-shirt. For all race participants, Zeta Tau Alpha provides a way to recognize those who have been touched by breast cancer. Back signs are provided for those who wish to run or walk "In Celebration Of" or "In Memory Of" someone. Be sure to take part in our Race Day Survivor Recognition Program generously sponsored by Zeta Tau Alpha and Bank of America by joining us in the VIP/Survior Tent and joining us for the official survivor photo in front of the stage at 9:45 a.m.
Susan G. Komen for the Cure® has been in the forefront of the breast cancer movement for 30 years. The organization has changed how the world deals with and talks about this devastating disease. One of Komen for the Cure’s many accomplishments has been helping to transform millions of breast cancer patients into breast cancer survivors. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, of all the cancer survivors in the country, the 2.3 million breast cancer survivors represent the largest group of survivors of any kind of cancer in the United States — a living testament to the power of society and science to save lives. Although we anticipate and applaud the tremendous medical and scientific advances in the fight, sometimes the best therapy is the knowledge that we are not alone in this fight. We hope you were one of the more than 300 survivors who participated in the Komen 18th Northeastern New York Race for the Cure. For many people, especially survivors, taking part in the event surrounded by many friends running or walking beside you every step of the way is a very powerful experience.
Volunteers are an integral part of the Komen Organization. The Race for the Cure would not be possible without the help of hundreds of committed volunteers. Join an amazing group of individuals that dedicate their time, talent and energy to our great cause.
