How to help fight breast cancer

Updated on May 23, 2009

How to help

   Often times you want to do something to make a difference for someone suffering for breast cancer. Even though you may not personally find the cure for breast cancer there are many opportunities to raise awareness and money for research.

   When my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer my husband ran in the Donna Deegan's National Marathon to Fight Breast Cancer. Run  It is held in Jacksonville,FL. Many international runners attend; as well as national runners. This event is a great way to do your part in finding the cure. There is also a half marathon that many choose to walk. Running a marathon is for the serious runner, even if you plan to walk the half marathon there is still training involved. Nonetheless it is an event that helps keep you find and not only raises awareness but millions specifically for breast cancer research.

Race for the Cure

   Another running event is Run for the Cure. This event is also specifically for breast cancer research. It is an exciting event to be a part of. There are a lot of opportunities to participate. Like other runs you can volunteer to help with the event if you are not able to run. If we all do our part we will find the cure sooner.
