The Susan G. Komen foundation is gearing up for another fantastic year of fund raising through The Race for the Cure Series. This series of 5K runs and fitness walks contribute to the world’s largest and most successful education and fund raising event for breast cancer.
Since 1983, the Komen Race for the Cure events have celebrated survivors, honored those who have lost their battles, and raised awareness about breast cancer. The event started in 1983 with one race and 800 people. Today, over 1.6 million people are participating on four different continents.
The Race for the Cure Series includes options for all fitness levels.
Competitive 5Ks, non-timed 5Ks, and 1 to 2 mile walks are options at most of the events. Events often include a race for children as well. Another option for those wanting to participate, yet may not be available is the “Sleep In for the Cure.” With this option, one may donate their money and have a shirt mailed to them.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month! While you’ve probably already read about Diets in Review’s 3rd annual Blogs Against Breast Cancer campaign, we wanted to give you a few more fun products to sport and show your support for finding a cure for breast cancer.

It is also the second most common cause of cancer death in white, black, Asian/Pacific Islander and American Indian/Alaska Native women. With an estimated 1 in 8 women in the United States at risk for developing invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime, it’s safe to say that most of us have had someone in our lives, our ourselves, affected by breast cancer.

During the month of October you’ll find everything from soup cans to tennis shoes dyed pink all in the name of Breast Cancer Awareness. It’s an important cause, as breast cancer will be a diagnosis heard by one in eight women.
