Metro Detroiters Step Up for the Susan G. Komen Detroit Race for the Cure(R), May 30
Date:5/26/2009

INSPIRING HOPE, SAVING LIVES, HELPING TO END BREAST CANCER FOREVER

DETROIT, May 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Metro Detroiters have shown time and again that even in the most challenging of times, their generosity and support for others is heartfelt and unwavering. At a period when most headlines across the nation and world paint a somewhat bleak picture of Detroit and its future, nowhere do we feel a more determined spirit to rise above these challenges than right here in the Motor City. Just ask any of the 30,000 plus participants and the more than 100 local sponsors and underwriters who will take part in the 2009 Susan G. Komen Detroit Race for the Cure(R), on Saturday, May 30, at Comerica Park, in Detroit.

The Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute has been the local presenting sponsor of the Komen Detroit Race for the Cure(R) for the past 17 years. Together, our community has rallied the support of family, friends, neighbors and coworkers to raise nearly $2.3 million in 2008 alone in the fight against breast cancer. As a result, a record $1.58 million funded breast health education, breast cancer screening and treatment programs in Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties, allowing the uninsured and underinsured to receive the needed services they might not otherwise get. Additionally, $676,000 was contributed to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Award and Research Grant Program, with much of this funding benefiting Michigan scientists. Thanks to Race funds, Komen Detroit provides year-round resources to Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties. Since 1992, the Detroit Race has raised a total of $15.4 million in the fight against breast cancer.

Metro Detroiters are stepping up to the challenge to help end breast cancer. This year more than ever, we need everyone's support.

Every three minutes a woman in the United States is diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 40,000 women wi
