Race for Cure

CRISP-ANDREW-113 by Amy Crisp

Did you know that the breast cancer mortality rate is higher in Washington D.C. than the national average? It is something that affects us all – men and women – but it is the leading cause of cancer death in women ages 20 to 59.

In an effort to help raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research, Trinity UMC will participate in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure on Saturday, May 10. The Race for the Cure is a 5K held in Washington D.C., and the funds raised are used to support local programs that support Komen’s promise to save lives and end breast cancer. It is an amazing event that has done wonderful work in helping to fight breast cancer.

RFTC_TeamLogo-2ColorYou are invited to join our team (http://bit.ly/tumcraceforthecure) and walk in the 5K with us. Or, if you cannot join us in the actual race, you may donate to the cause. You can donate to any of the individuals on our team or to the team in general. If you have any questions on how to join us or donate to the cause, please get in touch with me.

We also ask for your prayers, not only for our team and fundraising efforts, but for all those who are impacted by breast cancer every day.

On the day of the walk, we will gather as a team for a brief devotional and prayer time before we start the race. If you would like to join us and cheer us on as we complete the 5K, you are welcome. We would love to have your support!
