From the moment a person's breast cancer diagnosis is confirmed, she or he is considered a survivor. Race day is an opportunity for us to recognize our survivors for their bravery, and to show them how much they are loved, cherished, and respected.
Events Planned for Survivors:
As any breast cancer survivor knows, facing the challenges of fighting this difficult disease is not done alone. Each and every survivor has been supported by a team made up of spouses, parents, friends, neighbors, co-workers and many others. To recognize that beating this disease is a team effort this award asks Survivors to nominate the individual who stood by their side during their fight. Nominate your co-survivor here.
The Jane Mosley “Keep Up the Fight” Award
This award is presented to an individual or organization that has made a significant difference in the fight against breast cancer. Their work has been persistent, diligent and has had an impact by raising awareness and advancing the education of their community as a whole. Self-nominations are accepted but must be supported by at least one letter of recommendation. Nominate an individual or organization here.
New Balance Survivor Award
New Balance will recognize a Survivor at the Race who has a compelling story to share and further the fight against breast cancer. We know that everyone’s breast cancer experience is unique, very private and a personal triumph. This person must feel comfortable talking to the media and being recognized in a public manner. This survivor will also receive a complete New Balance outfit – shoes, socks, shorts and shirt. Their picture will be taken and sent to New Balance along with a press release prior to the race. They will also be recognized during the Survivor Tribute on Race day. Nominate a survivor here.
Registered breast cancer Survivors, who wish to be recognized, may pick up their complimentary single ribbon for this year of survivorship at the Survivor Pavilion on Race day. We would also like to invite participants to recognize those special people who have been touched by breast cancer. "In Memory of" and "In Celebration of" back signs will be available for all Race participants.
Nominations for all Survivor awards are due by 5:00 p.m. Friday, May 12, 2016.
