Smile Generation partners with Komen Race for the Cure
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. Last year the Smile Generation had teams at 8 different races, totaling 443 team members. Between sponsorship, registration and fundraising the Smile Generation provided nearly $100,000 to Susan G. Komen throughout the race season.
In 2012 we’re sponsoring races in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Sacramento, Newport Beach, Denver, Phoenix, Dallas and Temecula.
The first race will take place in Los Angeles on March 24th, 2012, Saturday at Dodger Stadium. We invite you to support this great cause that raises funds for breast cancer prevention and research. You can sign up for our Smile Generation Team Page and invite your friends and family to join too. Team members can run or walk the 5K starting at 9 am. Registration fees include a Komen Race t-shirt, race entry bib, and the new Smile Generation Breast Cancer Awareness t-shirt. The registration fees are as follows: $40 for adults, $35 for youth and seniors, $30 for kids in stadium fun run, $30 for survivors, and if you want to skip the race but still be part of the team, you can donate $40 for sleep in for the cure.
According to the Smile Generation’s We Serve (Outreach) Manager Kyle Guerin, “We sponsor Race for the Cure because we care and we listen to what’s important to our followers and teammates. It’s hard to find someone who has not been directly affected by breast cancer whether that’s someone’s Grandma, Mom, or Daughter. People who are involved with Susan G. Komen are passionate about finding a cure and so are we. “
