Race for the Cure 2015

News Story

September is just around the corner and it's almost time to race for the cure. Register today and join the Pace team in the fight against breast cancer.

In 2015, it is estimated that there will be 231,840 new cases of invasive breast cancer, 60,290 new cases of in situ breast cancer, and 40,290 breast cancer deaths among US women alone. For men, it’s estimated that there will be 2,350 new cases and 440 deaths. On Sunday, September 13, step out with the Pace Community as we run for life at the 25th annual Susan G. Komen Greater NYC: Race for the Cure in Central Park.

Since 1990, Komen Greater NYC has raised approximately $65 million and awarded $45 million in grants to local breast health programs for underserved and at-risk women, as well as invested in cutting-edge research to find the cures.

Last year, with more than 110 participants, Pace University once again fielded the largest team from a university or college. And we want to keep this streak going!

So what are you waiting for?

Registration is $45 and you can register online here or by going to www.komennyc.org/race and searching for the “Pace University” team.

Participants will receive:

  • >> A commemorative t-shirt

  • >> Goody bag

  • >> Breakfast

  • >> Transportation from PLV to Central Park

For more information or to register as part of Pace's team, contact Professor Ellen Mandel at emandel@pace.edu or (845) 634-1781 or Meghan Wright at mw03149p@pace.edu.
