(CINCINNATI, OH, 9/10/07) – On September 9, CAIR-Ohio’s Cincinnati office organized a team to walk in the Race for the Cure charity benefit event. The CAIR-Ohio team raised $500 to help support breast cancer research.
The event was organized by the Greater Cincinnati Affiliate of Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure to help fund vital breast cancer education, screening and treatment programs in the community and to support the national search for a cure. It was part of CAIR’s “Muslims Care” campaign to promote volunteerism in the American Muslim community.
Many of the Muslim women walking in this event wore pink head scarves as a symbol of their support for breast cancer research.
“This was the first year CAIR-Cincinnati organized a team for Race for the Cure and it was a successful beginning. The fund raising goal was achieved and team members participated in both the walk and the competitive run,” said CAIR Cincinnati Executive Director Karen Dabdoub.
