CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -
WBTV is not only a media sponsor of Susan G. Komen's Charlotte "Race for the Cure", it's also a personal cause for our station. Many of us in the building – newsroom, sales and management – have been affected by breast cancer or had loved ones affected by breast cancer. Finding a cure is close to our hearts. We'd love for you to help us in this mission.
One in eight women are diagnosed with breast cancer every year. Charlotte's "Race for the Cure" helps save the lives of the uninsured and under-insured in our area, and inspires tens of thousands more.
This year's Race is Saturday, October 6th. Check your calendar and sign up now! Join us! The registration fee is a $30 tax-deductible donation. If you sign up for a WBTV team, you get two t-shirts (one Komen & one WBTV).
WBTV has two teams… morning anchor John Carter is captain of "WBTV Boob Tube Team John" and evening anchor Molly Grantham is captain of "WBTV Boob Tube Team Molly". Sign up for either one and invite a friend or two to register with you. It's an awesome morning full of community spirit. (If you have any questions you can email John and Molly directly: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com)
In last year's race, 25,000 people crowded into Uptown to walk, run, skip, push strollers and just plain support survivors. The start line was breath-taking.
Last year's race also raised enough to give $1.4-million to nine local counties. It gave $550,000 to research grants to help find a cure. The money diagnosed 60+ women in our area with breast cancer and paid for over 6,000 mammograms.
We'll hopefully see you October 6th. We're excited. We hope you are too.
