On Sunday, October 2nd, a group of Robinson students, teachers and parents participated in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in honor of our teacher Nancy Galichet and Robinson mom Meileen Ortega, both courageous examples of strength, character and hope.
Susan G. Komen is the most widely known, largest and best-funded breast cancer organization in the United States. Currently in Puerto Rico, five women are being diagnosed with breast cancer every day. This is why we take part in educating and creating awareness about this condition.
The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure is the largest race in Puerto Rico. 100% of the funds raised go towards breast health centers as well as support programs for breast cancer patients, co-survivors and family members.
The Race for the Cure was celebrated at Coliseo José Miguel Agrelot. It began on Avenida Muñoz Rivera, continued through Avenida Central and returned to the point of departure through Avenida Ponce de León.
A big shout-out goes in order to Robinson students, teachers and parents who participated in this beautiful and empowering event in memory of the women who lost their life battling breast cancer, in honor of those who are still battling it, and to celebrate the lives of the ones who have survived it.
