Komen NCTC Asks Community To Nominate Breast Cancer Survivors, Co-Survivors and Supporters for Awards

Wilmington, NC- Susan G. Komen North Carolina Triangle to the Coast will honor breast cancer survivors, co- survivors and those who have made a difference in the fight against breast cancer at the Komen Wilmington Race for the Cure® with awards. The community is encouraged to nominate  individuals who are an inspiration to everyone touched by breast cancer and the ones who help survivors during their journey.

New Balance Survivor Award
New Balance will recognize a Survivor at the Race who has a compelling story to share and further the fight against breast cancer. We know that everyone’s breast cancer experience is unique, very private and a personal triumph. This person must feel comfortable talking to the media and being recognized in a public manner. This survivor will also receive a complete New Balance outfit – shoes, socks, shorts and shirt. Their picture will be taken and sent to New Balance along with a press release prior to the race. They will also be recognized during the Survivor Tribute on Race day. Click Here to Apply

Co-Survivor Award
As any breast cancer survivor knows, facing the challenges of fighting this difficult disease is not done alone. Each and every survivor has been supported by a team made up of spouses, parents, friends, neighbors, co-workers and many others. To recognize that beating this disease is a team effort this award asks Survivors to nominate the individual who stood by their side during their fight. Click Here to Apply

Their work has been persistent, diligent and has had an impact by raising awareness and advancing the education of their community as a whole.
