Crusading for Komen

Crusading for Komen

Life isn’t about the destination. It’s about what you did on the journey. Giving back to the community is very important to me. I am especially passionate about causes that help women and children – like Crusading for Komen.

Recently, an acquaintance reached out to see if I would be interested in serving on the board of directors for Susan G. Komen Greater Fort Worth, which is gearing up for their largest fundraiser next month. The 23rd Annual Race for the Cure – a walk-run that will be held on April 25 at Ridgmar Mall – raises funds and awareness for the fight against breast cancer, celebrates breast cancer survivors and honors those who have lost their lives.

I have friends in the legal community who have been stricken with breast cancer. I have seen first-hand the devastation and destruction caused by the disease.  So helping and supporting this organization just felt right.

This week, I was officially elected to Komen Greater Fort Worth’s board of directors, a position I am honored to hold. Since 1992, Komen Greater Fort Worth has raised over $22 million to provide services, education and outreach to the local community.

But there is still much work to be done. I am ready to roll up my sleeves and get started. How about you?
