Beginning New Traditions
“We hope to make this an annual tradition. It’s great bringing team spirit and a greater purpose to the office every chance we get. This is a cause that is meaningful and worthwhile, while centered around an opportunity to be out in the community together giving back. We’re thankful for all who were able to participate and we look forward to next year!” said Tom Clement, Chief Sales Officer and Partner at Frontline Asset Strategies.
Race for the Cure
The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure is a fundraising arm of the greater Susan G. Komen® organization, founded in 1982 with a mission to end breast cancer. Susan Komen’s sister, Nancy G. Brinker, began the organization based on a promise she made to Susan in 1980 as Susan was losing her battle with breast cancer. According to its website, the organization has now “invested more than $2.9 billion in groundbreaking research, community health outreach, advocacy and programs in more than 60 countries.” Their “efforts helped reduce deaths from breast cancer by 40 percent between 1989-2016.”
Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Breast Cancer Awareness Month was started by the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. Its mission is prevention-oriented, focused on leveraging the power of increased awareness to help educate women and encourage routine screenings for early detection. This includes increasing affordable access to mammograms and regular checkups. The organization spreads the important message of knowledge and proactive measures to save lives. The wearing of pink truly is an awareness campaign for routinely taking time to remember the importance of keeping up with regular self-exams and doctor’s exams for early detection.
