Lubbock Group to Participate in Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk

Thousands of women and men come together, each raising money for Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the National Philanthropic Trust Breast Cancer Fund. Then they take their commitment to end breast cancer one step further and walk 60 miles over the course of three days.

Eighty-five percent of the net proceeds of this event go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Every advancement in breast cancer research, treatment, education and prevention in the last 25 years has been touched by a Komen for the Cure grant.

The remaining fifteen percent of net funds goes to the National Philanthropic Trust Breast Cancer Fund to provide a permanent endowment for ongoing support of breast cancer initiatives.For more information on the Breast Cancer 3 Day Walk benefiting Susan G. Komen for the Cure, log onto click here.

Legacy Makers is a team inspired the battle being fought by our dear friend Christie Devitt. Christie is a beautiful 30-year-old woman who was diagnosed with breast cancer one month after being told she was pregnant with her second child.

If you would like to aid Legacy Makers in their fight against breast cancer, you can donate by clicking here.
