Komen Pittsburgh Race for the Cure

I have spent much of the past year raising funds for breast cancer research and awareness through Spot a Cure. Many of you have helped by purchasing t-shirts, sweatshirts, or scarves. Thank you!
I'm asking for your help once again. Two of my friends who are breast cancer survivors are walking in the Komen Pittsburgh Race for the Cure on Mother's Day, May 9. Donations for this awesome cause can be made through the Spot a Cure website via PayPal by clicking this link:
When designating an amount for your donation in PayPal, be sure to click on "Please tell us about your donation" and type in the word "Race" in that field, along with your name and any text you wish to include so that we may recognize your donation on the Spot a Cure website.
I have learned many startling statistics through my work with Spot a Cure. One in seven women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, so the woman you save by making a donation could be you or someone you love!! Also, three of four cases of breast cancer arise in women with no known risk factors, so please be diligent about those self breast exams and mammograms! Nearly all breast cancers can be treated successfully if found early. When breast cancer is found at its earliest stage, the five-year survival rate is 98%.
Help us continue the fight against breast cancer with your donation to the Komen Pittsburgh Race for the Cure. I know that things are still tough economically, but any little bit helps! I would like nothing more than for Spot a Cure to become obsolete when a cure for breast cancer is found!!!
