D.C. Mayor Fenty, Italian Ambassador Help Announce First-Ever Susan G. Komen Global Race for the Cure(R)
Date:3/10/2009

growing breast cancer crisis worldwide.

"We are grateful for the role Susan G. Komen for the Cure is playing on the world stage to educate and empower women in our country, as well as others across the globe," said Ambassador Castellaneta. "We are excited to be a part of the new Global Race, and we challenge all of our fellow embassies and friends in the diplomatic community to form teams and join us in racing for the cure."

Last year Komen launched the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Global Promise Fund to address breast cancer incidence and mortality outside the United States. Twenty-five percent of proceeds from the Komen Global Race for the Cure will be dedicated to that Fund for international community education and outreach programs.

"Without a cure, in the next 25 years, an estimated 11 million will die from the disease worldwide. That's more than AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria combined," said Ambassador Nancy G. Brinker, who founded Susan G. Komen for the Cure as a promise to her sister to end breast cancer forever. "We can stem the tide of the growing crises; we can share what we have learned; we can end breast cancer forever, all around the world. And with events like the Susan G. Komen Global Race for the Cure, we will."

Komen for the Cure announced a combined $3.7 million in community grants to the following groups in the Washington, D.C. area from proceeds from the 2008 National Race for the Cure.
