Emory Radiology Races for a Cure

June 5, 2014

On May 10, 2014 a great team of Emory staff, physicians and friends came together to help fight breast cancer in our community.  In just 2 1/2 weeks, Team Emory Radiolgy raised over $1000 for the Komen Atlanta Race for the Cure.  Teammates walked or ran a 5K starting at Lenox Square, and their little ones participated in a 1 mile Kids for the Cure race.  Everyone had a fantastic time supporting the fight against breast cancer!  
The Komen Race for the Cure is a community event that honors and memorializes breast cancer survivors, co-survivors and those that have lost their battle to the disease. The Race also plays a vital role in raising funds for research, education, prevention, advocacy and treatment. Each year over 1.7 million people take part in Race for the Cure events around the world.
Up to 75% of the net proceeds raised through the Komen Race for the Cure stays right here in our community to fund breast cancer programs and at least 25% supports Susan G. Komen’s national grants program to fund research.
