Race for the Cure is a coed 5K run/walk to raise awareness, raise funds, and celebrate breast cancer survivors. The “Greylock Gals” have chartered a coach bus from North Adams Regional Hospital to Boston for the race, followed by lunch and shopping in Quincy Market. All team members will receive a Greylock Gals and Race for the Cure t-shirt. The race fee is $35 with an additional $25 for bus transportation to and from Boston. Reservations are required.
Komen for the Cure is a financial supporter of NARH’s Breast Health Program, providing funding for a variety of initiatives including outreach and education for women in North Berkshire. In 2012 Komen for the Cure provided a $40,000 grant to expand support services. Up to 75% of the money raised in the Boston race will be used in Massachusetts for breast cancer detection, education, and treatment.
