Join Us In Jerusalem!
By: Elana Silber, Director of Operations
What a monumental day for Sharsheret! Sitting in the front row at an historic Press Conference at Susan G. Komen for the Cure in Washington, DC last Wednesday, Rochelle Shoretz and I were thrilled to hear Nancy Brinker, the Founder of Komen, name Sharsheret as a partner in the first ever Israel Race for the Cure to be held in Jerusalem. In the months ahead, Sharsheret will work closely with Komen and share with you details about the October Race and related events, which will include a week of programming on enhancing advocacy, awareness, screening and treatment of breast cancer in Israel and worldwide. It was most inspiring to hear from the Mayor of Jerusalem, Nir Barakat, as he described how the Israel Race will “open the gates of Jerusalem to all those who want to see a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime.” This October, thousands of young Jewish women and families will come together in Jerusalem for a common cause. Please join us as we cross the finish line together and take one step closer to the cure.
