Welcome to our Komen Central and South Jersey Race for the Cure Team NJEA page!
Everyone on Team NJEA has been touched by breast cancer in some way and that is why we are doing our part to help fight breast cancer forever.
This year's race is on Sunday, Nov. 6. 75% of all the money raised by the Komen Central and South Jersey affiliate stays in New Jersey and supports local community grants and programs.
Why should you support Team NJEA in the fight against breast cancer?
One in eight women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
Every minute, somewhere in the world, someone dies from breast cancer.
Breast cancer knows no boundaries- be it age, gender, socio-economic status or geographic location.
We continue to Race because at the current rate, 13 million breast cancer deaths around the world will occur in the next 25 years. New Jersey has the 3rd highest mortality rate for breast cancer in the U.S.
The Komen Central and South Jersey service area has a higher mortality rate and higher percentage of late-stage diagnoses than New Jersey as a whole and the U.S.
