Race for the Cure

Wednesday, June 10, 2009

The Komen Race for the Cure is an event that takes place world wide in the fight against Breast Cancer. There is a group of women from Lake Park and the surrounding area, as well as from five other states, that has formed a team, raised money, and participated in this race for the last several years.

On June 6 we held a garage sale / bake sale / pie and coffee sale to raise money for this cause. The community support and resulting funds raised were beyond our expectations, so we have some thank you's we need to make at this time.

First, we need to thank the United Methodist Church for embracing our cause and allowing us to hold our fund raiser inside the church building. With the weather being what it was, we couldn't have done it without being inside and at such a prime location. Also, we need to thank the people outside of our team that helped that day, and contributed items for sale, as well as bake sale items and pies. The Lakes News Shopper advertised for us at no cost, and we appreciate that so much. And most of all we need to thank the community for your support.
