2018 Komen Virginia Blue Ridge 9th Annual Race for the Cure

Teresa Hawkness, a Komen ambassador from the Martinsville-Henry County area, and her team, KDW for the Cure supporting the Race for the Cure.

Members of the Martinsville-Henry County area participated in the Komen Virginia Blue Ridge Race for the Cure that was held Saturday, April 14 at the Rivers Edge Sports Complex in Roanoke, VA.

The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® Series is the world’s largest and most successful education and fundraising event for breast cancer ever created. The series of 5K runs and fitness walks raises significant funds and awareness for the breast cancer movement, celebrates breast cancer survivorship and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease. The Komen Race Series welcomes people of all ages and fitness levels, from walkers to elite runners.

The 2018 Komen Virginia Blue Ridge Race for the Cure has raised $216,192.86 of the $300,000 goal. For more information, on teams that participated, click here.

This signature fundraiser makes it possible for the Affiliate to continue to financially support community programs, such as Ladies First, the MHC Coalition for Health and Wellness’ mammography assistance program. Without the community’s support, the Affiliate could not fund these programs or invest in research. For more information on Ladies First, click here.
