Dear Friends and Family,

I recently accepted the challenge to raise funds to supportthe Komen Portland Race for the Cure® on September21st in the fight to save lives and end breast cancer forever.

Did you know that Susan G. Komen for the Cure® locally helps toprovide more than 7,000 free screening mammograms for theuninsured women of Oregon and SW Washington who otherwise cannot afford them? Unfortunately, 37,000 more local women needmammograms but don't get them. That is why I am fundraising andjoining this year's Race, to help Susan G. Komen for the Curesave lives through early detection.Imagine the impact...Seventy-five percent of the dollars you donate will fund vitalservices across Oregon and SW Washington, while twenty-five percentwill be combined with other Affiliates' funds to fuel nationalbreast cancer research at an unprecedented level.*$10 funds ten support booklets for newly diagnosed breast cancerpatients.*$25 pays for a gas card for a low-income woman driving over 75miles one way to get a mammogram.*$77 can fund a free screening mammogram for one uninsured womanBy making a donation in this year's Race you can make adifference.
