We were honored that Susan Allen, former First Lady of Virginia and breast cancer advocate, was present and provided comments on how far the Affiliate has come in the last 10 years since the first Central Virginia Race for the Cure®.

Dr. Dwight Randle, Senior Scientific Advisor from Komen National and Keynote Speaker, provided insight on the latest trends and developments in breast cancer research.  The award ceremony was attended by the Affiliate’s Board of Directors, 2006 Race for the Cure Sponsors and dedicated volunteers from the Affiliate’s Education, Grants, and Fundraising Committees.

The highlight of the day was when each of the grantees provided the audience with details of their respective program and how they are helping the underserved women in our community.
