Last month the Komen staff and some Board members took the trolley out and about to meet and treat some of our awesome local media. Our local media ROCKS and is SO supportive of the Arkansas Race for the Cure. They are all there Race Day!!! Along with their support and yours…..that is what helps make our Race event so successful! They all talked about ways to make it even BETTER! Can you imagine!!!! I’m soooooo excited!!!!
Our goal is to be the number 1 Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure this year. We were number 2 last year! This goal is VERY much in reach! Help us reach the top that will help us help others! Wow, that’s a lot of help…huh?
I did not get to make it to all the stops with them but have I told you enough what a hard working Staff Arkansas Komen has? They are amazing! They started out at 6am. They met with the Arkansas Democrat Gazette, KARK 4, KLRT 16, KTHV 11 and KATV 7 all in one day!
We cannot thank everyone enough for the support this Race has. Our biggest goal is to help provide more money from fundraising to make it possible for even MORE grants for mammograms and research!!!
Together number 1 is well within our reach! Start forming your TEAM now. Sign up at http://www.komenarkansas.org Contact Laurie Reynolds or myself at firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions!

Last month my team lost one of our own…..although it was not to breast cancer….it was a HUGE loss all the same. Debra had a smile that you looked forward to seeing everyday at work. Her smile, hello and hugs are missed by many. She was very active in all our “Race Season” team activities.
Debra is on the right in the middle
This year will not be the same without her. We will honor her in a very special way though. All of our Team members are important and a very special part of Race for the Cure and to me! Thank you to ALL of our Teams! You ROCK!!!!! In memory of our Debra let’s get to #1 of ALL Races!!!!! Start now building your Teams. If you have ANY questions email Laurie or myself at email@example.com. Now….go hug your friends please!

It is always so exciting to attend the first race meeting of the year to hear what the Race Theme is for that year. This year was no different! So here goes……..drum roll please……
Thanks Jack! Awesome theme….
After you hear the Race Theme your mind wonders off for a minute….I know mine does….about what the Race Theme means to you and as a whole. This one says A LOT! Every Step Counts…..Every. Step. Counts. It means something different to everyone. We will hear from different people through this Race Year on exactly what they feel when they think about it.
