Don't just stand for something - RUN for it!

Posted by Jeri Maxedon 2009-05-13
"Whether you're running to the gym to put the finishing touches on that bikini body or running your laptop to catch the best deal on this year's family vacation, springtime is the season to refresh and renew the spirit, along with your commitments. Even as news of the recession drones on, women are still Warriors in the fight against breast cancer, spreading a message of hope, strength and unity.
Fords Warriors in Pink refreshes its 15-year commitment to the breast cancer cause this spring by offering even more ways to give back and further enforce that breast cancer affects us all 365 days a year. Below are some quick and easy ways to recognize the Warrior in your life."

Attend your loval Race for the Cure: With 121 Races nationwide, it seems that no matter where you are, there's a Race for the Cure nearby. Don't miss the all new "Warrior TV", where racers record a 15 second video message for the Warrior in their life who they are racing for, then download the clip to share after the race.

Take a test drive at your local Ford dealership and let Ford make a donation for you: From now until June 1, 2009, when you take a test drive at a Ford dealership, Ford will donate $20 on your behalf to your local Komen affiliate to support breast cancer research and awareness. Pick up your voucher at your local Race, or online at

No time to be out and about? No-problem - you can still get involved:

  8. I recently had a second friend who was told they have breast cancer.

    I show my support on facebook but making posts, asking for donations, twittering about it. I also post on my blog about breast cancer awareness and donations to the Susan G. Komen foundation as well.

    I am unable to run due to back injuries but when my friends and family go do this Iam there on the sidelines cheering them on.

  17. What a wonderful giveaway to support such an important cause! On Saturday, June 13th I will be attending the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Buffalo, NY. I won't be running in it, but I am going to support 2 friends of mine who both are and I am going to cheer them on and just be there to support the cause. One of the two women who are running is a breast cancer survivor and I have known her for 12 years. She is a true warrior and her strength and will to fight her disease was and still is an inspiration to me. I am honored to be there in June to show her how wonderful I think she is. Thanks for the chance to enter, I'd love to surprise her with something like this basket.
