Catherine’s Service Reflection

For some of my service hours this year, I ran in and organized the FS team for the Susan G. Komen Run for the Cure in early September (http://www.komennyc.org/). It has been a tradition for the Varsity Women’s soccer team to run in this race every year because it falls just before the start of our season and is a great bonding experience. I was happy to carry on the tradition of entering a team into the race and to be involved with such an incredible event. The Susan G. Komen Run for the Cure is one of the biggest charity walks/runs in the world and raises a considerable amount of money for cancer research and for outreach and support programs. One of the best parts of running in this race was seeing just how many people cared about the cause and wanted to help out. It was touching both to see people running in support of family members or friends who suffered from breast cancer and to see people running just to support the charity as a whole. I will definitely run in the race again next year!
