Behold the Power of Pink! The Treasure Valley Races for the Cure

By Dr. David C. Pate, News and Community
May 13, 2013

Treasure Valley residents walked, ran, and rolled by the hundreds Saturday, creating a sea of pink for the 15th annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure through Boise.

Thousands of dollars were raised for breast cancer education and awareness programs, and breast cancer survivors got the hero treatment from families, friends, and the community. 

St. Luke's volunteers and staff members brought information and turned out to support our patients with cancer. Our booth volunteers included representatives from St. Luke’s Mountain States Tumor Institute, Breast Care Services in the Treasure Valley, McCall, and Wood River, St. Luke’s Men’s Health, the Women’s Fitness Celebration, and the Health Window.

Thanks to everyone for their show of support for those who face breast cancer!
