Can you believe it? Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure is three months away! Plans are well underway for this year's race. The News on Six in once again proud to be the media sponsor. Last year was a record setting event with more than ten thousand participants and raised more than $600,000! Despite our current economic situation, I believe it will be a great year.

Throughout the year, I've been so amazed at the number of women who've been diagnosed with breast cancer. Mother, grandmothers, sisters and aunts... lives changed forever because of this diagnosis. They email me asking about my personal journey. It breaks my heart that these women have to travel this journey but I'm hoping one day, there will be a cure! Each year, we're one step closer. Money raised in the race will help fund research but it also helps provide programs to help patients on a daily basis.

Team registration has begun and you're invited to sign up. Go to and register your team! It could be your co-workers, friends, family members; anyone can get together to form a team.

Look for your chance to join my team as well! We'll have details about that in the very near future! Whether you're a serious runner or just want to walk, Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure wants you!
