Run Breast Cancer Out of Town

News Story

We know you’re looking forward to summer. But why not look just a little more forward to the annual Race for the Cure on September 7? Join the Pace team today to save on registration fees.

In 2014, it is estimated that there will be more than a quarter of a million new cases of breast cancer and 40,000 deaths in the U.S. alone. On September 7, step out with the Pace Community as we run for life at the Susan G. Komen Greater NYC: Race for the Cure in Central Park.

Since 1990, Komen Greater NYC has raised approximately $60 million and awarded $43 million in grants to local breast health programs for underserved and at-risk women, as well as invested in cutting-edge research to find the cures.

Last year, with more than 110 participants, the Pace team once again won for the largest university or college team. And we want to keep this streak going!

So what are you waiting for? Early bird registration is just $35 before July 15 ($40 after that date and $50 on race day) and you can register online by going to www.komennyc.org/race and searching for the “Pace University” team.

Participants will receive:

> A Race for the Cure t-shirt

> Goody bag

> Breakfast

> Transportation from the Westchester Campus to Central Park

Contact Ellen Mandel at emandel@pace.edu or (845) 634-1781 or Elissa Casa at ec94582p@pace.edu for more info.

Proceeds will benefit the Greater New York City affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, which supports local hospitals and national foundations for research.

Out of town that weekend? Can’t make the race? You can still make a difference. Back by popular demand—Sleep for the Cure! Register for the race and then spend your Sunday morning sleeping in. Participants can also run or walk.
