Gardener's For the Cure- 2013entry-Garden Supply Co

The 2013 Komen Triangle Race for the Cure is now less than two weeks away. If you haven't had a chance to yet, it's not too late to join our Komen team, Gardeners for the Cure. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of thousands of women and their families by not only funding cutting edge research for Breast Cancer being done here in the Triangle, but to fund over 40,000 underserved families around us facing a lack of resources for screening and treatment. As of today, we are halfway to our fundraising goal, and we are dedicated to making it all the way to $15,000 again this year. Will you help?
