At the time of last year’s Race, Gregory’s mother, Susan Protz, was battling a very rare and aggressive form of breast cancer. Unfortunately, after 16 months of fighting she lost the battle on November 8, 2014.
“I support the fight against breast cancer because I support my Momma and want no one to have to suffer like she did. Everything I raised and anything I will do from this point forward to raise awareness will be in her honor.” says Gregory.
This year, Gregory ranked #85 on the 2015 Pink Honor Roll for his phenomenal fundraising efforts in raising $1,605 to support Komen Houston’s mission – to save lives and end breast cancer forever.
It was his first year to participate in the Komen Houston Race for the Cure®. “My favorite part was realizing how willing friends and family were to participate and donate to the cause.” shares Gregory.
