It is important to us that we continue to support this cause and the women battling this disease, as well as the survivors and all of their families. This year, we walked in honor of Rebecca Carpenter, who beat the cancer. She’s a survivor!
Lewisville, Texas (PRWEB) October 18, 2011
For the eighth year, PRISM Media Group walked in support of the fight against cancer in the Komen Dallas Race for the Cure, which took place at NorthPark Center on October 15, 2011.
“It is important to us that we continue to support this cause and the women battling this disease, as well as the survivors and all of their families,” PRISM Companies CEO Ray Larson said. “This year, we walked in honor of Rebecca Carpenter, who beat the cancer. She’s a survivor!”
Carpenter is the mother of one of 15 PRISM employees who participated in this year’s walk. The 58-year-old Carrollton resident has been cancer free since April 2009. Employees were joined by their families on the team, continuing what has become a tradition for PRISM Media Group.
The Komen Dallas Race for the Cure® is an annual 1K and 5K fundraising walk/run event held at NorthPark Center. It is a co-ed race and great fun for the entire family. The Race is in its 29th year and is part of a national 5K series sponsored by Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The goal of the event is to raise funds, heighten awareness and educate people about breast health as well as to recognize and celebrate breast cancer survivorship. The Race is the largest fundraising event for local breast cancer screening, treatment, education and research in Dallas County. Last year the affiliate granted $1,912,000 into the immediate Dallas community for these vital services.
