The 19th Annual ‘Race for the Cure’ by Susan G. Komen Central and South Jersey is to fall this Sunday, a recent report has unveiled.
It is being said that the event has been planned seeing the arrival of Breast Cancer Month, which falls in the month of October. The event, sponsored by the Philadelphia Komen affiliate, had first begun in 1983, when almost 800 people had participated for the noble cause.
And now, the same has spread over to more than 140 races all over the world. Also, the number of participants has increased to some 1.6 million. The event had bagged around $1.6 million last year with the race, as per the Central and South Jersey affiliate in Lawrenceville.
It has been told that the money collected was then invested into educational programs and for mammograms for free. These mammograms meant for women from areas served by the affiliate, including Gloucester and Burlington counties.
The race is to begin at Great Adventure in Jackson at around 8 a. m. People would be made aware about the disease and the cure and would be asked to donate for the cause in some way.
“We rely heavily on volunteers”, Marketing and Communications coordinator Leslie-Anne McPherson said.
