Think Pink by Patti

The law firm I work for organized a team ("Think Pink") to participate in the Susan Komen Race for the Cure (5K run/walk) on Saturday, September 28th at Fashion Island. All proceeds from Race for the Cure will go toward breast cancer research. Team Think Pink began with 10 members and a $5,000 goal. We now have 60 team members, have raised $5,845.00 (to date), and have increased our goal to $10,000. I donated the money from The Crossing to team Think Pink to be matched by other participants.

The money donated by The Crossing will ultimately go to the Susan Komen foundation to support breast cancer research. Two of our attorneys and the former assistant office manager of our firm were diagnosed with breast cancer during the past year, so breast cancer research is very near and dear to our hearts.
