Educators for a Cure

As educators, here's our opportunity to make a difference here in Detroit!

The 26th Annual Komen Detroit Race for the Cure will be held on Saturday, May 13, 2017, at Comerica Park. The college once again has a team called Educators for a Cure.

This event is a 5k Run/Walk. (This is approximately 6,900 steps towards the recommended 10,000 steps for each day.) Registration is open now. We would like to invite everyone in the college to join the Wayne State University community by either walking or running on May 13. Bring your family and friends, too!

Last year, WSU had 13 teams with 111 participants, and we raised more than $10,000. Let's have the College of Education be one of the largest teams this year! Every dollar counts towards saving lives, particularly in Metro Detroit, where 75% of the race proceeds help uninsured and underinsured women (and men, too) get screening and help. One hundred women in the Detroit area have already been helped this year under just one Komen Detroit grant. Join the Wayne Cares community on Saturday, May 13, and help us make a difference in the fight against cancer.
