The Hamilton County based Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure team “The Bobbetts” received the 2015 “Longest Mile” Award for the team traveling the furthest distance to the Tri-State Evansville Affiliate Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure on September 27th at Eastland Mall in Evansville, Indiana.
This is the 11th year the team has received the award.
Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure is the world’s largest and most successful education and fundraising event for breast cancer ever created.
The event raises significant funds and awareness for the breast cancer movement, celebrates breast cancer survivorship and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease.
This Race is unique in the fact that 100% of the net proceeds are allocated to the organization’s mission. 75 percent of the net income stays in local communities to help fund local programs offering breast health education and breast cancer screening and treatment. The remaining 25 percent of the net income supports the Susan G. Komen Grants Program.
