Meanwhile back at the ranch in Roanoke, Virginia, Foot Levelers’ hometown….

L-R: Elizabeth Hand, Mission Coordinator, and Catherine Warren, Executive Director of Susan G. Komen Virginia Blue Ridge

We welcomed two very special guests yesterday, Catherine and Elizabeth from Susan G. Komen Virginia Blue Ridge chapter. Elizabeth spoke to our employees about breast care and early warning signs of breast cancer, while Catherine was busy signing up employees for the Susan G. Komen Virginia Blue Ridge Race for the Cure on April 29th (a week after the Foot Levelers Blue Ridge Marathon).

Susan G. Komen’s mission is to “save lives by meeting the most critical needs in our communities and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer.” They do incredible, life-saving work raising awareness and if — when — a cure is developed, it will be thanks in part to the millions that Komen invests in research.  Now that’s a mission we can get behind.

Foot Levelers encourages all our employees to Race for the Cure, and we make it easy by covering everyone’s registration fees. That way folks can focus on what’s important: raising money for Komen!

A big shout out and thank you to Catherine and Elizabeth for their time today (and for the cupcakes!)!
