Randolph Bank Team Takes to the Streets to Raise Funds in the Fight Against Breast Cancer

Residents Commit to Walk 60-Miles in Three Days for the Cause.

Asheboro, NC, April 01, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Sixty miles, three days, thousands of steps, and months of preparation to make a personal difference in finding the cures. A Randolph Bank team consisting of local residents Jennifer Morton of Asheboro, Peggy Yates of Trinity, and Meg Shepler of High Point, have joined thousands of breast cancer supporters in preparing for the 2010 Susan G. Komen Atlanta 3-Day for the CureTM. After months of training and fundraising, participants will walk 60 miles during three days to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research and community-based breast health and education programs.

“This is our first year participating in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure. Randolph Bank and its employees are committed to the community and this is another way that we are going the extra-mile to do our part in helping others.” said Jennifer Morton, Team Captain & Marketing Manager at Randolph Bank. “Through my participation in this event I know I am making a personal impact on the breast cancer movement. The Komen 3-Day for the Cure is challenging, but the opportunity to have an impact is enormous.”

Each walker is supported by coaches and online assistance aiding in all aspects of training and fundraising. Additionally, clinics, meetings, training walks, teams and buddy walkers provide ongoing encouragement.

The Susan G. Komen Atlanta 3-Day for the Cure starts on Friday morning, October 22nd and ends with the Closing Ceremony on Sunday afternoon, October 24th. Walkers cover about 20 miles a day, traveling at their own pace. Hundreds of volunteer crew members support the walkers through the three-day journey providing meals, refreshments and snack stops, gear transport, hot showers, portable restrooms, safety on the streets and 24-hour medical services. The Komen 3-Day for the Cure is the greatest distance you can go in the fight against breast cancer.

More than 1.3 million women will be diagnosed with breast cancer globally each year. To help the Randolph Bank team reach their goal by making a donation, visit http://www.the3day.org/goto/JenniferMorton.
