)-- These teams are so committed and involved with this fight that they generally rank in the top ten race standings each year, bringing in thousands of dollars in contributions.
The dedication of DynCorp International personnel to this cause even extends overseas with a team in Oman participating in its local Koman race.
Founded in 1982, Susan G. Komen for the Cure®raises more nonprofit funds to fight breast cancer than any similar organization worldwide and has invested more than $1.9 billion dollars in breast cancer programs since its founding. Their website notes, “As the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists, we’re working together to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures.” According to Nancy Brinker, the Race for the Cure is the most successful event ever created to provide funding for and education about breast cancer.
Race for the Cure and other events help Susan G. Komen generate funding to raise awareness of the causes and symptoms of breast cancer as well as ways to help prevent it through screenings and lifestyle changes. The goal is more early detection, more hope, more research, and more survivors.
