I am very proud of the fact that my family and HandCraft wines have contributed over $100,000 to support breast cancer research, prevention and awareness.
Napa, CA (PRWEB) June 20, 2013
Cheryl Indelicato, 3rd generation California vintner, will lead Team HandCraft in the 3-Day 60 mile Susan G. Komen Walk for the Cure in San Francisco on June 21-23, 2013 as part of an expanded initiative by HandCraft Artisan Collection wines to support the fight against breast cancer. The San Francisco Komen 3-Day raises millions of dollars to fund national research and provide services to uninsured and underinsured women in the San Francisco Bay Area. Komen is currently the largest non-profit funder of breast cancer research outside of the federal government.
The June event will be Cheryl’s third 60-mile 3-Day in less than one year. “The walks are a way for me to make a personal difference in the fight against breast cancer,” said Cheryl. “I am also very proud of the fact that my family and HandCraft wines have contributed over $100,000 to support breast cancer research, prevention and awareness. This cause has been very dear to my heart ever since my days as a Registered Nurse,” continued the vintner.
Cheryl will sponsor two HandCraft employees to join her and Team HandCraft on the walk this year. Interested winery employees were invited to submit as essay about why they are inspired to walk for the cure and how they will train for the journey. "I am looking forward to sharing this remarkable and life changing experience with two of my colleagues,” continued Cheryl. “The spirit of teamwork and community involvement the 3-Day brings is unlike anything I have ever experienced.”
Team HandCraft will also participate in the Komen SF Bay Area 5K Race for the Cure that takes place along the Embarcadero in San Francisco on September 29, 2013. Last year, 42 friends and family from the winery participated in the race and this year the winery expects to double that number. “I am thrilled that everyone at the winery is behind Team HandCraft and our initiatives to increase awareness and early detection of breast cancer, a treatable and beatable disease,” said Cheryl.
