One Cause - One Team!

team logo

The UTMB Cancer Center is spearheading this year's UTMB team for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® on Saturday, October 3, 2009 in downtown Houston.  We want to make UTMB's presence at this year's event a HUGE one, so please join with us as ONE TEAM UNITED to fight this ONE CAUSE to eliminate breast cancer in our lifetime! The annual event has raised more than $1 billion through the years to support breast cancer research and treatment programs around the country and over $25 million in the past 19 years for the Houston area.  UTMB Cancer programs have received more than $3 million in Komen funding, providing screening for over 2,000 women and diagnostic services for over 1200 women in the last 4 years.  Efforts to build a strong UTMB Cancer Center presence to show our support at the event on October 3 are underway and we need your support, so please join with us as ONE TEAM United!!!!

Any UTMB employee, family member, friend or volunteer is invited to join the team, called "Cruisin' for a Cure". Click here to join the "UTMB Cancer Center-Cruisin' for a Cure". The fee to walk or run in the race is $30 per person or $25 for breast cancer survivors.  UTMB will be providing complimentary handsome logo shirts to all members of the team. 

Teri Wenglein-Callender and Marsha Ullrich are serving as this year's Honorary Chairs, and the "Cruisin'" Steering Committee hopes to assemble a team of at least 125 members who will raise a minimum of $15,000 in donations. If you cannot make the event, you can contribute to any participate or to the UTMB Cruisers team through the Komen website.  For more information, please contact Kathy Bass, UTMB Cancer Center, at 747-1935 or kba ss@utmb.edu.  Lots more details to come, so join the FUN!
