Realtor Teresa Lampley of Crye-Leike joins The Jazzercize Team and thousands of participants at the Susan Komen Race for a Cure in Nashville

FAIRVIEW, TN.- Crye-Leike, REALTORS is proud to recognize Affiliate Broker Teresa Lampley who joined with the Jazzercise Team in support of the 2008 Susan Komen Race for the Cure, Saturday, October 4, 2008 in Downtown Nashville and the fight to end breast cancer.


“This run was a humbling experience in itself since some of the runners are survivors and some are running for those that lost the fight with breast cancer,” said Teresa.  “I personally have friends and family members that are in both those groups.”


Teresa joined in the record turnout for the Race For The Cure on Saturday in Downtown Nashville.  The annual event is celebrating raising more than $1-million dollars.  Nearly 75 percent of the net proceeds raised by Greater Nashville’s participation stays in Middle Tennessee. The proceeds are used to fund outreach programs and initiatives that address the specific unmet breast health needs of our community. A minimum of 25 percent of net proceeds raised supports the national Susan G. Komen for the Cure Award and Research Grant Program.


“I actually feel fortunate to have my health and it is worth acknowledging those that were not as fortunate as I,” said Teresa.  “The race /run is a way of feeling the “burn” and the “sweat” to commemorate the survivors and the ones lost.  Participating in an event such as this not only helps the cause but it also is very mood elevating for me.  I’m doing for others and in doing so, I am rewarded too.”


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.


The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure? Series raises significant funds and awareness for the fight against breast cancer, celebrates breast cancer survivorship, and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease. With funds raised by the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure Series, Susan G. Komen for the Cure with its Affiliate Network is able to fund breast cancer research grants, meritorious awards, and community outreach programs.


Since its origination in Dallas, Texas, in 1983, Race for the Cure has grown from one local Race with 800 participants to a national series of more than 125 Races with over 1.5 million people expected to participate in 2007.


“It’s not enough just to feel sorry for someone, you have to stand-up for the ones that need your help and support,” said Teresa.  “It’s the least I can do.”
