Carly for California Team: Race for the Cure

Last February, I got the devastating news that 200,000 other Americans received last year: I had breast cancer. But thanks to the improved early detection and life-saving medical advances championed and supported by organizations like Susan G. Komen for the Cure, I can today count myself among our nation’s 2.5 million breast cancer survivors.

During my battle with breast cancer, I was touched by the kindness of many strangers. I met many inspiring people who have survived cancer and have rededicated themselves to a meaningful life afterward. Now, I have the opportunity to pay forward the hope and kindness others shared with me during some of my most difficult days.

Today, it’s my privilege to launch the “Carly for California Team.” Together, we will participate in the Susan G. Komen 2010 Sacramento Race for the Cure on May 8. It’s a 5k run/walk in our state’s capital city and a great event for the whole family…so get your running shoes on, and get ready!

Komen for the Cure was founded in 1982 by Nancy Brinker in fulfillment of her promise to her sister, Susan, that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. Through events like the Sacramento Race for the Cure, the foundation has invested nearly $1 billion to that mission. In the Sacramento Valley region alone, Komen for the Cure has awarded grants totaling more than $6.8 million to fund innovative local outreach and awareness programs for medically underserved communities.

Frank and I are also honored to support this terrific organization by contributing to Circle of Promise, a movement committed to mobilizing the African American community to ensure women have access to the care they need, empowering them to take an active role in their health and in their communities and encouraging women to pursue early treatment for breast cancer.

I hope you will join me in supporting Susan G. Komen for the Cure by clicking here to sign up to either join us on race day or, if you cannot participate, help support our team. Your donation is greatly appreciated.
