Community: Canes for a Cure
Ryan Kieras
You may know the statistics: over 225,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer were discovered in the U.S. in the past year alone; 1 out of 8 American women will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in their lifetime; every 69 seconds a life is lost to breast cancer. Or you may know someone – a friend, a family member, a co-worker – who is either currently battling or has previously been faced with battling breast cancer. You may also know the feeling when that person you care about does not survive their battle. But hopefully, you also know that there are ways in which we can all work together in order to get one step closer to finding a cure.

On Saturday, June 9, the Carolina Hurricanes will once again be participating in the Susan G. Komen NC Triangle Race for the Cure. Last year, 45 Caniacs showed up on race day to support our team – Canes for a Cure – and raise money and awareness for the fight against breast cancer. In total, our team raised close to $4,000 for breast cancer research, awareness, treatment and prevention. This year we are hoping to beat that total by raising over $5,000 as a team, and in order to do this we need your help.

To sign up for the Canes for a Cure team, please visit our team’s page or go here, click on “Join A Team,” and search for “Canes for a Cure.”

If you join and raise an additional $100 OR recruit four new members for the Canes for a Cure Komen team, you will be entered to win a complete set of autographed Holiday Pucks!

We look forward to seeing you all on June 9 as we help move one step closer to finding a cure for breast cancer.
