It seems particularly appropriate that on the day of Maryland’s landmark event, the Susan G. Komen Maryland Race for the Cure which is happening now, that we also report on another landmark event – the first ever Family Pink-Out Walk for the Cure – to be hosted by Woodlawn High School next Saturday (October 29, 2011) from 7:00 am – 12:00 pm, at the school’s Kevin Liles Stadium Track.
Woodlawn High’s event is designed to increase awareness about breast cancer; and participants from the school and community will walk together to help raise funds to find a cure.
The Pink-Out Breast Cancer Walk for the Cure will benefit the Susan G. Komen’s Race for the Cure, and the school’s goal is to raise $5,000.
The event has been organized and is sponsored by the school’s 100 Strong Females and 100 Strong Males groups. Food, music, and family fun will also be featured at the event on the 29th.
For additional information, contact Donna Jones, Leslie Wilkerson, Sean D’alfonso or Gerrod Dixon, at Woodlawn High School, (410) 887.1309

When Rachel Sklar of Mediaite posed for the BCA campaign this past summer, she asked if she could be joined by her cousin, Suzanne Bartholomew, a two-time breast cancer survivor, currently undergoing chemotherapy. It was our pleasure and honor to invite Suzanne to join us in this campaign. Her photos represent the strength and courage that Suzanne applied to her life. Suzanne was a passionate and outspoken advocate for awareness and research. As such, it was with great sadness that we learned that Suzanne ultimately succumbed to this disease on January 26th.
Today we honor her memory by recommitting to continue the fight to spread awareness, the importance of early detection and the need for funds to support the visionary breast cancer researchers who are working to deny any more lives lost to breast cancer.
