Come Out & Support Komen This Summer

Run BC out of town





Summer is here and the 2011 Komen Greater NYC Race for the Cure® is right around the corner.  Last year’s Race raised $5.4 million for the fight against breast cancer, all because of volunteers like you.  We need your help again this year to continue the fight.

Please join Komen Greater NYC by signing up for one of our volunteer opportunities.  Tell your family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors about these opportunities—groups are always welcome, so bring them along!
