The Pink Issue

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and here at TPWP cancer research is very close to our heart. So, for the rest of the month we will bring you The Pink Issue. We have hand-picked some of our favorite items from designers and companies that donate part of the proceeds to several wonderful advocacy networks such as The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, The Avon Foundation and The Breast Cancer Network of Strength. Click on any of the links or the advertisers on the right to learn more about how you can help.

Susan Komen Global Race for the Cure

In 9 days the Susan G Komen Global Race for the Cure will take place here in Washington DC. My fellow scientists and I have started a team to participate in the 5K walk/run. Last year, the race raised $3.7 million for local organizations that work tirelessly to assist vulnerable populations. This year, they hope to raise $6.1 million – 75% of which will stay in our area.

My team has raised over $1000, but we still need your help. No matter how you get involved, the important thing is that you join us.
