San Diego CA— San Diego County Credit Union® (SDCCU®), San Diego’s largest locally-owned financial institution, continues its support for breast cancer research and treatments as a sponsor of the Susan G. Komen San Diego Race for the Cure®, to be held in San Diego’s Balboa Park area on November 4.
“SDCCU is proud to once again support this event and join in the movement working to find the cures that will end breast cancer,” said SDCCU President and CEO Teresa Halleck Campbell. “We proudly support the Susan G. Komen organization and appreciate their passionate efforts to provide education, find cures and save lives.”
More than 15,000 people have participated either as a walker or timed runner at previous Komen Race events in San Diego. The event raises money to help patients and their families and provides funds for breast cancer research. This year’s walk will feature 5k & 1 mile route options, live entertainment, food trucks, a vendor expo and a Survivor Village – a space dedicated to honoring and pampering breast cancer survivors.
Susan G. Komen focuses on early detection and effective treatment to provide the best chance of survival from breast cancer. The organization is the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. The San Diego affiliate of Susan G. Komen is just one of the more than 75 non-profit organizations and community events supported annually by SDCCU.
