Pace Realty Runs For The Cure
More than 25,000 runners and walkers descended upon Meredith College in Raleigh Saturday morning for the 15th annual Susan G. Komen NC Triangle Race for the Cure. Saturday's total was about 29,500 people in attendance, according to event organizers. About 850 teams, including a Pace Realty Group team, participated Saturday. Organizers said they raised about $1.8 million toward a $2 million goal. For the past fifteen years the Raleigh community has come together to help raise money for the cure.
According to the Triangle Race for the Cure, 75 percent of the funds raised through events like the Race for the Cure go to funding grants in the group's 20 county service area at local hospitals and community organizations. They provide breast health education along with breast cancer screening and treatment programs for medically under-served women in our community. The remaining 25 percent supports the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Award and Research Grant Program, which funds groundbreaking breast cancer research at the national level.
