Come join us for the 15th Annual Susan G. Komen Northwest NC Race for the Cure® at our new location and date! The Susan G. Komen Northwest NC Race for the Cure® will be held in Downtown Winston-Salem with pre- and post-Race celebrations at the BB&T Ballpark.

For the past 14 years, Susan G. Komen® Northwest NC has been hosting the annual Susan G. Komen® Race for the Cure.  For 14 years it was held in the same place and in the same month, but this is a big year.  This will be year 15 of our iconic Race, and we’ve got some very exciting news.

15thannualsgkomen

This year, the Susan G. Komen® Northwest NC Race will be held on Sept. 27, 2014, at the BB&T Ball Park in Winston-Salem.  The change was spurred by the hope of kicking off Breast Cancer Awareness Month on the right foot.

Race is more than just a 5k walk and run…it’s a celebration of breast cancer survivors, fighters, co-survivors, pre-vivors (BRCA positive men and women) and dedicated advocators who want to see the world rid of breast cancer.  However, registering for the Race is only half the battle.  Komen Northwest NC takes donations throughout the year and from Race and uses them for a variety of reasons, such as community grants and to help provide underprivileged women receive education materials, proper treatment and preventative care.

For more information and to register for the Race, go to our website: www.komennorthwestnc.org/

Sign-up on Facebook: www.facebook.com/events/1451400265092623/

So what does this mean for you?  It means you need to fundraise.

Fundraising is so important and every penny helps.  Don’t be afraid to go door-to-door or to host dinner party for friends and family – you can have each person pay for a plate of food, and then take a portion of that for a donation. For more unique and creative fundraising ideas, visit 101Fundraising Ideas.

When you decide to register for Race, remember that this is more than just a celebration of the strong and courageous individuals who have overcome breast cancer.  It’s more than just a remembrance of those who bravely fought cancer but lost their battle.  Race is a beacon of hope that radiates throughout the nation that boldly states, “We envision a world without breast cancer, and we won’t stop until we can make it happen.”

Currently, Race registration is $25 for adult non-timed and $30 for adult timed racers.  Starting April 1, registration prices go up to $30-$35.  To register for Race or to activate a team from last year, click here.

What Makes a Relay Event Special?

Many moments create the unique Relay experience. Event details vary by location, but all events have key moments in common:

 

RFL.org What is Relay page photo1

Survivors Lap

During the Survivors Lap, all cancer survivors at the event take the first lap around the track, celebrating their victory over cancer while cheered on by the other participants who line the track. Relay For Life events also recognize and celebrate caregivers, who give time, love, and support to their friends, family, neighbors, and coworkers facing cancer.

Luminaria Ceremony

The Luminaria Ceremony takes place after dark, so we can remember people we have lost to cancer, honor people who have fought cancer in the past, and support those whose fight continues. Candles are lit inside of personalized bags and are placed around the Relay track as glowing tributes to those who’ve been affected by cancer. Learn More »

RFL.org What is Relay page photo2

Fight Back Ceremony

This emotionally powerful ceremony inspires Relay participants to take action. The Fight Back Ceremony symbolizes the emotional commitment each of us can make in the fight against cancer. The action taken represents what we are willing to do for ourselves, for our loved ones, and for our community to fight cancer year-round and to commit to saving lives.

History of Relay For Life

RFL.org What is Relay page photo4

In May 1985, Dr. Gordy Klatt walked and ran for 24 hours around a track in Tacoma, Washington, ultimately raising $27,000 to help the American Cancer Society fight the nation’s biggest health concern – cancer. A year later, 340 supporters joined the overnight event. Since those first steps, the Relay For Life movement has grown into a worldwide phenomenon, raising nearly $5 billion to fight cancer.

 

Kids of Childhood Cancer In Honor of Brandon Ingram

This month’s The Loop-Kernersville Fundraiser will be in Honor of Brandon Ingram – a local 10 year old has been battling Ewing’s Sarcoma since he was diagnosed on November 28, 2011. He relapsed on June 14, 2013 and is now on Hospice care in Winston-Salem.brandoningram1

The financial toll of cancer, the bills, and what costs are yet to come have hit hard. Our foundation Kids of Childhood Cancer has offered a “Brandon’s Warriors” Fundraiser Night at our monthly Loop Night on February 27th.

10% of all proceeds from all orders from anyone who comes will be donated to Brandon, on top of any donations to the foundation. 100% of OUR donations will help Brandon’s family as well.

Brandon relapsed on June 14, 2013 after being sick for weeks. At his 9 month checkup an xray discovered that the cancer had spread to his lungs and chest wall. The tumors were multiple and too extensive for surgery. He was given 6 months to 1 year at best then with only a 7% chance of a cure. After enduring more IV chemo treatments and radiation, his body had enough and it was beginning to cause more harm than good. He is currently receiving Hospice care at home and holistic nutritional therapy in hopes that he can get strong enough and we can find another treatment somewhere else soon. We have been fortunate until this year that insurance paid for his care, but 2014 is different, and all of the holistic therapy has to be paid for by us. A fundraising effort is underway that  we hope can open up new avenues for treatment that we haven’t been able to even consider before!
Your prayers and support are appreciated! ~April

Maintaining a diet rich in phytochemicals and antioxidants plays a vital role in preventing cancer.

Antioxidants and phytochemicals are nutrients found in certain foods that protect cells from free radical damage—a form of cell damage that can lead to cancer. Fortunately, phytochemicals and antioxidants can be found in most plant-based foods such as fruits, vegetables, beans, and grains.

Therefore, it is important to get the recommended 5-6 servings of fruits and vegetables each day. Be sure to incorporate Omega-3 fatty acids, which can be found in foods such as tuna and walnuts, and whole grains into your diet as well.

Avoid foods that are high in fat, such as processed meats, to help maintain a healthy weight and cholesterol level, as excess body fat and high cholesterol are both risk factors for developing cancer.

Many studies have shown that long-term lifestyle modifications, such maintaining a nutrient-rich, well-balanced…
