breast cancer mortality rates in America."

In addition, Ambassador Brinker and Secretary Rice announced Susan G. Komen for the Cure's intention to re-name the 2009 event -- which will mark the 20th anniversary of the National Race -- the "Susan G. Komen GLOBAL Race for the Cure."

"It's been said that arguing against globalization is like arguing against the laws of gravity," said Ambassador Brinker. "As today's National Race Parade of Nations illustrated, our reach and influence now extend far beyond our nation's borders. And our promise to end breast cancer forever is not limited to one country or one people. It's universal."

After the Susan G. Komen National Race for the Cure, participants enjoyed a performance on the main stage by Grammy-nominated singer and songwriter Vanessa Carlton. She played songs from her latest album, Heroes and Thieves, along with hit singles "A Thousand Miles" and "Ordinary Day" from her 2002 debut album, Be Not Nobody.

A majority of the funds raised from this year's Susan G. Komen National Race for the Cure will remain in the National Capital Area; last year, $3.3 million from the 2007 Susan G. Komen National Race for the Cure went to fund outreach programs and initiatives that address the unmet breast health needs of the area. The remaining net proceeds support cutting-edge breast cancer research through the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Award and Research Grant Program.

The National Presenting Sponsor of the 2008 Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure Series is Yoplait. Official Race Series Partners are American Airlines, Coldwater Creek(R), Energizer(R), Ford Division, FUZE Beverage, New Balance Athletic Shoe, Inc. and Quilted Northern Ultra(R). The National Breast Cancer Survivor Recognition Program is co-sponsored by RE/MAX and Zeta Tau Alpha.
