Susan G. Komen Race(R) for the Cure Set for November 4 in Balboa Park

New Logo, New Name and New T-Shirt Design Marks 2007 Race in San Diego

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- The 11th annual Susan G. Komen San Diego Race for the Cure(R) will be held in Balboa Park on Sunday, November 4 at 8 a.m. With less than three weeks until the Race, participants still have two final opportunities to register for the 5K event. Register online at until Monday, October 22 or visit Roadrunner Sports at 553 Copley Drive on Tuesday, October 30 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.


More than 15,000 participants from across the county, including 1,000 breast cancer survivors, will join forces in San Diego and take one step at a time in working toward Susan G. Komen for the Cure's vision -- a world without breast cancer. The Race offers many creative and exciting ways to join the breast cancer movement, including:

-- The Komen Kids for the Cure(R) Race gives kids ages 5-12 a fun new way

to get involved. The "Kids" program encourages families to educate

children ages 12 and under about breast cancer awareness by allowing

their children to join the thousands of expected Race participants in

this year's Race for the Cure. All participating children will receive

a kids' size Race T-shirt. The cost of Kids for the Cure is $15.

-- Sleep In for the Cure(R) allows participants to support the Komen San

Diego Race from the comfort of their own bed. Participants who choose

to hit snooze on Race Day will receive a T-shirt, special snooze Race

bib and an official Race bib -- just in case they get out of bed on

Race morning! Sleep in for the Cure for $27.

-- Form a team with family, friends or colleagues. Last year's record

number of 383 teams accounted for nearly half of all Race participants.

New Look, Same Promise for 25th Anniversary

Making a debut at this year's annual Komen San Diego Race are new t-shirts worn by all participants, breast cancer survivors, Race committee members and volunteers. The shirts feature Susan G. Komen for the Cure's new pink running ribbon logo in a pattern across the front.

"Our new name and pink ribbon logo leave no question about the only acceptable result of the work we do -- we are Susan G. Komen for the Cure," said Angie Thieman, President of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure San Diego Affiliate Board of Directors. "We're on a mission to end breast cancer forever, and events like this Race help us raise funds crucial to getting us closer to finding a cure for this disease."

Last year, the Komen San Diego Race for the Cure raised a total of $1 million and awarded a record $650,000 to local breast health and breast cancer education, screening and treatment programs for the medically underserved in San Diego County. The remaining net proceeds support cutting-edge breast cancer research and the pursuit of Susan G. Komen for the Cure's vision -- a world without breast cancer.

About Susan G. Komen for the Cure San Diego

Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure and launched the global breast cancer movement. Today, Komen for the Cure is the world's largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to events like the Komen Race for the Cure, we have invested nearly $1 billion to fulfill our promise, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world. The local San Diego affiliate was established in 1992. For more information about the local Susan G. Komen for the Cure affiliate, visit
