The Susan G. Komen Race For The Cure is a nationally-held fundraising event for breast cancer research. We ran for those who have been impacted by a breast cancer diagnosis — whether a friend, family member, coworker, or even oneself.
These races bring hope.
Not only does the Race for the Cure raise awareness and build community — but they also raise money to help end breast cancer once and for all.
The JB Goodwin Team Arrived in Force
That’s why 80 JB Goodwin racers woke up bright and early on Sunday, September 30th.
The race began south of the South Congress bridge, where a sea of runners was surrounded by well-wishers holding signs and wearing shirts in memory or support of a loved one who has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
Other excited supporters were located at different legs of the race, holding signs and wearing the characteristic pink garb, spurring on the runners to make it through the finish line.
After the race, the JB Goodwin team met back up at our tent to share post-race breakfast tacos and local pastries.
Over $10,000 Raised For Cancer Research
Through our turnout and participation, we are pleased to say that JB Goodwin raised $10,144.40 for cancer research! We want to say a huge thank-you to our runners who made this fundraising possible.
As an organization, JB Goodwin takes pride in the large number of charities and causes our team members collectively support. Whether through financial giving or lending their personal time, our team loves to give back to their communities. See some of the other activities and organizations we support.
