On Saturday, October 1st, Advocate Capital, Inc.’s Team Hope will become Team Shirley. We will be embarking on yet another exciting year for the Susan G. Komen Foundation’s Race for the Cure! Only this time, we will be doing so in honor of Advocate Capital’s very own breast cancer survivor, Shirley Johnson.
Shirley does so much for our team every day and we are proud to be participating in this event to celebrate women like her, as well as honor those who have lost their battle with the disease.
So far, we have more than 20 Team Hope volunteers signed up for the 5K walk/run, but it’ll take a lot more than our efforts come October 1st if we want to end breast cancer once and for all. Statistics show one in eight women here in the U.S. will be diagnosed with the disease in their lifetime, and 13 million others will die from breast cancer worldwide in the next 25 years. Team Shirley is hoping to fight those statistics and raise $1,000 to support the Komen foundation and its mission. Will you join with us in this fight? Your donation will not only help us reach our goal, but it will be a powerful contribution to the Race for the Cure and for breast cancer patients everywhere.
