About Susan G. Komen For The Cure
Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure and launched the global breast cancer movement. Today, Komen for the Cure 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. Thanks to events like the Komen Race for the Cure, we have invested nearly $1 billion to fulfill our promise, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.
About Lax For The Cure(TM)
Lax For The Cure was the initial concept of Jessica Shoulberg, Mendham High School Coach, Director of STEPS Lacrosse and Director of the Lax By The Sea tournament. During the summer of 2007 The STEPS Lacrosse club had 4 mothers fighting breast cancer. Jessica felt the need to do something. Jessica’s concept came from the notion that with the growth of girls lacrosse and the summer tournament recruiting circuit, an opportunity presented itself to raise funds for a great cause while meeting the ideals of players, parents, clubs, and college coaches.
