Race for the Cure

Team Vandal Fights for the Cure

Bright pink, light pink and just about every shade in-between could be seen in southeast Boise as thousands gathered to celebrate the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. Among the runners, walkers, and social strollers was a large contingent of Idaho Vandals showing school spirit, pride and their dedication to raise money and awareness in the fight against breast cancer.

For the first time, the University of Idaho formed a team, and the participation surpassed others. Team Vandal – Fight for a Cure had 81 racers in its inaugural year making it the largest team in its category.

This year’s event was a part of Vandal Service Day. The volunteer initiative allows alumni, parents and friends to serve their communities all in the name of the University of Idaho. The University is in its second year of supporting the initiative, with the help of those who attended the Race for the Cure and others who have helped at different events in the past. This type of program and other philanthropic opportunities in Idaho and around the nation are leaving a lasting, positive impression on those who get involved.

The morning started with a quick gathering of those who were able to make their way through the crowds. Many of the team participants could be spotted wearing traditional gold, silver or black. But it was even easier to spot participants who were wearing the team’s official shirts. Light gold t-shirts with the Vandal “I” filled in with pink ribbons. The extra shirt meant an extra expense for participants, but well worth the month for many who helped out the cure while helping the VandalStore give back money to students through scholarships.
The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure

The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure started in 1983 with one race and 800 participants. Over the past 28 years, it has grown significantly to include more than 120 races nationwide, with more than one=million participants. A majority of funds raised at the Komen-Boise event will remain in the Treasure Valley to support breast health research, diagnostics, screening, treatment, services and education for uninsured and underinsured women. The remaining roughly 25-percent helps fund national research with ultimately goal to find a cure.
