Our vision: A World without Breast Cancer
We celebrate those who have triumphed over the disease, encourage those who are in the struggle, and remember those who have lost their battle.
At the Annual Race for the Cure®:
· The Survivor Tent is exclusively for Survivors, where they may receive a mini-massage, entry into special drawings, ribbons and/or beads to show for every year of survival, and special treats.
· Survivors who wish to be recognized receive a complementary pink t-shirt (grey shirt for men). All participants may choose to wear a back sign celebrating someone surviving breast cancer or in memory of those who are lost to the disease.
· An Honorary Survivor Chair is named each year. This person is someone known in the community, has actively supported the fight against breast cancer, and is an inspiration to others. She or he will be the starter for the Walks, and will be honored at the Awards Ceremony.
The annual Survivor Celebration Luncheon was held last October and helped kick off Breast Cancer Awareness month. It was held at The Woods Event Center in Merrifield, at no cost to survivors. Invitations are sent to all survivors in our local area. They are treated to a delicious meal, entertainment, an informative speaker, and many door prizes. If you or someone you know has not received an invitation in the past, please let us know. Due to HIPPA requirements, we are not allowed to receive medical information from doctors, clinics or hospitals, so survivors must contact us directly, or register for the Race for the Cure® as a Survivor.
