CHATTANOOGA, TN.- Crye-Leike, REALTORS is proud to recognize its Chattanooga associates and employees for their support of the 2008 Susan Koman Race for the Cure, Sunday, September 28, 2008 and the fight to end breast cancer. The Crye-Leike, REALTORS Cares Team drew support from several offices in the East Tennessee region including: Athens, Downtown Chattanooga, East Brainerd, Ooltewah, New Homes Division in Ooltewah and Signal Mountain.
“This is our way of standing up to fight breast cancer,” said Doris Townsend, Crye-Leike Agent and Team Captain. “We dedicated our race this year in memory of Tina Turner, an East Brainerd agent who passed away last fall after losing her fight with breast cancer. We have to do all we can to help save women from this horrible disease that is being diagnosed in one of eight women.”
Crye-Leike associates and employees joined in the record turnout for the race on Sunday, which attracted nearly 6,100 participants and a record 113 teams. The Crye-Leike, REALTORS Cares Team raised more than $1,400 and team members are still accepting donations.
“We were so very excited to have a lovely lady Judy Sneed from our New Homes Division join us as a 10 year breast cancer survivor,” said Doris. “Some of the other agents who ran and walked with us have also lost very close family members and friends in this battle.
The Crye-Leike, REALTORS Cares Team included: Cheryl Campbell, Melonie Carideo, Wendy Dixon, Dan Griess, Robin Hale, Cathleen Hughes, Emily and Rick Lasater, Ed Mahn, Mollie Majors, Amy Mathews, Shirley Moore, Judie Morton, Claryn Myers, Jennifer Newton, Sam Nkana, Jeannie Paone, Rachel Parker, Rob Hatchett, Liz Reinsel, Katie Smith, Judy Sneed, Jenne Sofield, John Temple, Doris and Sarah Townsend, Vicki Trapp, Gail and Mike Tryon.
Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. For the past 25 years, Komen for the Cure has played a critical role in every major advance in the breast cancer movement. Because of the organization’s efforts to establish the importance of early detection in finding and treating breast cancer, nearly 75 percent of women over the age of 40 now receive regular screening mammograms, compared to just 30 percent in 1982.
“We are committed to help find a cure for breast cancer,” said Doris. “It takes all of us together to save lives.”
