BOSTON, Massachusetts – Over 50 HBS students, partners and friends participated in the Boston Race for the Cure on Sunday, September 10. Race for the Cure is a 5K fitness run/walk. The HBS team, which was organized by the Women’s Student Association (WSA), raised $4,417 to support the Massachusetts Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
The group met at 7:30 a.m. on Sunday morning to travel to University of Massachusetts Boston Campus to complete the run/walk. “By 10 am, I had already done a 5K; usually I would still be in bed.” said Anne Hubert (OB). “It was a beautiful morning and a great way to spend some time with friends.” Afterwards, the group had brunch together on campus.
This is the second year that the WSA has organized a team from HBS. Participation increased this year through a collaboration with the Partners Club, which also encouraged its members to attend.
Overall, the 14th Annual Boston Race for the Cure raised over $460,000 which provides critical funding for breast health services and research at the local, national, and international levels.
“I was touched by all of the survivors who were walking with us and the overwhelming support of the HBS community and the Boston community at large,” said Emily Waldon (OB).
