This year, Team Houston Methodist Cancer Center ranked as Top Fundraising Team #97 for their phenomenal fundraising efforts in raising $1,976 to support Komen Houston’s mission – to save lives and end breast cancer forever.
“We support to make an impact on the community, to educate people and empower them. Susan G. Komen® Houston funds important grants that expand access to care and support research.” says team captain Jessica Meyer.
Each year, they identify team leads at each of their 7 hospitals/locations to generate awareness and interest in the Race. On Race Day, they set up their Houston Methodist Cancer Center booth and hand out thousands of giveaway items. Their team walkers and runners meet at their booth for team pictures and walk to the start line together.
“Our team runs/walks in support of patients and their families especially those treated at Houston Methodist Cancer Center. I’d like to also recognize our physicians and staff that care for our patients and their families.” adds Jessica.
