CSH will participate in Sunday’s annual Susan G. Komen Foundation
Race for the Cure as part of the Team Convent/Stuart Hall, marking the 15th consecutive year the school has supported the event for breast cancer research.

“I go with my mom to Race for the Cure as a reminder of what she went through and for a chance to show how grateful we are,” said sophomore Nini Maine of the 5K walk or run at the Embarcadero.
CSH’s goal for this year is to raise at least $5,000 for the Komen Foundation, according to Dean of Students Celine Curran.

The fundraiser raised over $1 million last year in San Francisco, celebrating breast cancer survivors, honors those who have lost the fight and raises awareness, according to the Komen Foundation.

“My mom [Kim Baltzell] survived breast cancer two different times,” said Maine. “The first time was when I was 10 months old and the second time was when I was in eighth grade. [We are] volunteering at Race for the Cure to support other women who are going through the same experience today.”
