1st NH Komen Race set for May 12th in Portsmouth

Komen Race for the Cure Coming to NH’s Seacoast

MANCHESTER, Vt. – The Vermont-New Hampshire Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists and the global leader of the breast cancer movement, has announced that the first-ever New Hampshire Race for the Cure will take place on May 12, 2012, in Portsmouth New Hampshire’s historic Strawbery Banke.

“We’ve been looking forward to this day for a long time,”says Debbie Peretz, the Affiliate President. “The logistics, managing a New Hampshire Race from Vermont, were challenging. Now, having two totally committed Seacoast residents, Race Co-chairs Jacqui Bryan and Marci Francis, on the ground, knowing the lay of the land, we’re confident that the New Hampshire Race series will be a big success.”

Since its inception in 1982, Susan G. Komen for the Cure®,the innovator of the Race for the Cure series has raised and invested more than $1.9 billion in the worldwide fight to eliminate breast cancer.

Regionally, the Vermont Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure came into being in 1993, became the Vermont-New Hampshire Affiliate in 2003, and will be celebrating its 20th Annual Race for the Cure in Manchester, Vermont in July of 2012. The Affiliate has raised more than $7.5 million since ’93. Of that total, more than $5.7 million directly benefited breast cancer education, screening and treatment in the two states and more than $1.8 million supported Komen’s Grants research program.

Volunteers of all stripes, for both pre-Race and Race Day positions, are needed now, as are corporate and individual sponsors.
