Why Do You Race?
I’m co-vice president of a running club Team Run Boise here in the Treasure Valley and we’ve got an incredible woman by the name of Gloria Rhodes on our team. Even before TRB existed, I’ve seen Gloria on the Race for the Cure course every year since I moved to the Treasure Valley. She kicked breast cancer’s ass and has been a member of the KISS the CURE team every year! I race for Gloria. I also race women like my friend Nikki’s bestie who’s no longer able to run after going through breast cancer treatment herself. Every since her treatment, her bones have been so weak that when she tries to run, she ends up with stress fractures. Running’s such a core part of who I am, that it breaks my heart that this sweet lady can’t enjoy it anymore, so I race for those who can’t. I race for the survivors and those still fighting!
Did you know?
1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their life and 87% of women diagnosed have NO history of breast cancer in their family. The five year survival rate for patients who are diagnosed early is 98%, but a lot of women in Idaho are uninsured, under insured or live in rural areas where it’s not easy to make it to a mammogram. The funds raised through Race for the Cure helps these women receive life saving mammograms! 75% of the money stays in Idaho to provide screenings, diagnostics and patient assistance programs like helping moms going through treatment find child care and providing gas cards to women needing to travel for treatment!
