Luke & Mommy Race for Cure Again in 2010!

In less than one week from today, on September 12, 2010, Luke and Mommy will join TEAM LISA and thousands of others for the annual Komen New York City Race for the Cure® for the third time. As the world’s leading breast cancer organization, Susan G. Komen for the Cure® is committed to ending breast cancer forever. By making a donation on our behalf, you are supporting local breast cancer screening, treatment, education and outreach along with national peer-reviewed research programs that will lead us to a world without breast cancer.


Komen Greater NYC has a multi-pronged approach to fighting breast cancer:

  • It addresses the community breast health needs of underserved populations in metropolitan New York
  • It supports essential local education, screening and treatment programs
  • It invests in crucial peer-reviewed research programs being conducted locally and nationally
  • UP TO 75% of the net revenue is used to support local breast health programs and at least 25 percent funds peer-reviewed national and local clinical research

Last year, Luke & I raised over $2000 for Team Lisa thanks to so many of you. Team Lisa raised over $12,000. This year, we want to match last year, and our goal is $2000 once again. Please help us reach that number with your financial support. Online donations are simple, and the site is secure. Please go to and click on the "SUPPORT PAIGE" button above the thermometer and make a tax-deductible donation today!

Feel free to wager and donate based on the following: Will Luke stay awake for even 1 of the 5 K – for the first time in Race history? Will a very pregnant Paige make it through all 5K, or will she bail & take a taxi? WIll she even fit in the t-shirt?!? Will Luke fill up on the bread basket at post-race brunch?


  • Because the greatest risk factors for getting breast cancer are being female and getting older
  • Because breast cancer knows no boundary be it age, gender, socioeconomic status, or geographic location
  • Because one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime
  • We race because it makes a real difference - just look at all of those pink survivor shirts on our team in that picture to the right - they are a testament to our success.

Most of all, Luke and I race because we love Auntie Lisa and are grateful to have her in our lives.

Thank you everyone for your support!


Paige & Luke
