May 11, 3013 was the 15th running of the Komen Idaho Race for the Cure event. About 12,200 people participated, a nice increase over last year. Team Wigod Plastic Surgery was there and we had a great time. We also received an award for the largest team in our category – Small Business (25 or fewer employees). Thanks to all who participated with our team or with others. It is hard to believe that 1 in 8 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Of the money that the Komen Foundation collects 25% goes to national for research and 75% stays at home to assist Idaho women with diagnosis, education, and other costs. If you would like to help the cause, donations are still being accepted.
