(SACRAMENTO, CA, 5/18/06) – On Saturday, May 13, 2006, the Sacramento Valley office of the Council on American-Islamic relations (CAIR-SV) participated in the tenth annual “Race for the Cure,” a relay sponsored by the Susan B. Komen breast cancer foundation.
The annual race helps to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research. Thousands of participants and cancer survivors joined the race, including a team organized by CAIR-SV.
“Breast cancer has touched the lives of many people around the world,” said Maren Shawesh, CAIR-SV volunteer coordinator. “It was both touching and empowering to join in solidarity with thousands of others for this wonderful cause.”
