The Komen Los Angeles County Affiliate raises funds to support local breast cancer services and national breast cancer research programs. A major focus is to help women who have symptoms of breast cancer but cannot afford diagnostic work or treatment – either because they do not have health insurance or because their insurance company will not pay. Of all breast cancer foundations, Komen is the only organization where 75% of the net proceeds stay in the communities where they are raised. From www.komenlacounty.org
This Sunday, March 14, thousands of people (including one of the writers of this blog…) are going to be running a 5K around Dodger’s Stadium in order to raise funds for women with breast cancer in L.A. County. The race starts and finishes at Dodger’s Stadium and winds through the area surrounding it. It doesn’t look as though any roads are going to be closed off, so traffic shouldn’t be a problem.
If you have any interest in running the race, it’s not too late to sign up! Click here to learn more or to make a donation!
