Race for the Cure

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

Now why would the employees of Teacher Created Resources drag themselves out of bed on a Sunday morning, in many cases before dawn, drive for an hour and then fight for a parking space? The answer is the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Newport Beach, California. For the last seven years, TCR has joined together to walk as one as we raise awareness and money to help defeat breast cancer.

The cause is very near and dear to the heart of this company as our owner, Mary Smith, is a breast cancer survivor. When we did the first race Mary wasn’t able to join us, but the next year she led the group! “It was truly a highlight for me that I was able to walk with all the folks at TCR and race to help raise money for breast cancer. Every year since, I have looked forward to being there. It is a remarkable morning with a wonderful survivors’ tribute. Bringing my grandchildren with me has made it all the more fun!”

This year, TCR has its very own poster family. Mary and her family are representing the Race for the Cure on the poster that is being used all over Orange County, California to advertise the race.
