There are several large events happening this weekend in South Florida.
What is it?
A #RaceForTheCure because more than 880,000 women live in our community and every year almost 1,500 of them are diagnosed with breast cancer. Of those diagnoses almost 500 are late stage, and unfortunately, we lose nearly 300 women in our community a year to this disease. Susan G. Komen® is ﬁghting every minute of every day to end breast cancer forever. And what I LOVE about the #RaceForTheCure is 75% of the money raised stays right here for prevention programs, education, even mammograms. The other 25% goes to breast cancer research.
