In 1995, New Balance began partnering with Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure to celebrate stories of survival and to honor athletes who have made a difference in the fight against breast cancer. Each year, each Komen affiliate nominates a local survivor to be part of the national Honorary Team New Balance. Members of the team are amazing men and women who have beaten the odds and who are making great things happen in their communities. They are also provided with special edition Lace Up for the Cure shoes and apparel, from New Balance, to wear on Race day.
Komen Acadiana needs you to submit a letter nominating a friend, family member, or colleague. Nominations must be received by December 15, 2012, by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Tel about their story of strength and courage, and how they have inspired people to get moving and keep fighting to make a cure happen.
This year's race is March 16, 2013. Don't forget to register today at www.komenacadiana.org.
Our vision is a world without breast cancer. Our promise is to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality of care for all, and energizing science to find the cures.
