PRLog - June 26, 2014 - ST. LOUIS -- The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure has been taking place in St. Louis for the past sixteen years. Once every summer, a sea of pink can be seen traveling downtown from Olive Street to Market Street. Friends and family members of women with breast cancer are not the only ones who come out and support the cause. Pets, especially dogs, and a giant turtle annually join their owners in the fight against breast cancer.

This year’s Race for the Cure was a huge success. Cardinal’s pitcher Jason Motte, an honorary chair for the 2014 race, showed support by taking pictures with fans. A procession of countless survivors was chilling yet empowering to witness. The race donates all money that is raised toward breast cancer screening, educational programs, and global breast cancer research. An incredible $9 million has been given to global breast cancer research solely from Komen St. Louis.
The team members at TOP Consulting were personally inspired to support the 2014 Race for the Cure. This June, TOP hosted their first ever Charity Sand Volleyball Tournament. Over 50 participants enjoyed food, drinks, and hours of sand volleyball. All proceeds went to Team Mary. Mary is a dear friend of those working at TOP and two-time survivor of breast cancer. Not wanting to stop with the volleyball tournament, the team enjoyed participating in the 2014 Walk. With the help of TOP Consulting, Team Mary raised over $16,000 this year.
“It’s crazy how such a small group of us can contribute to the massive charity event that is the St. Louis Race for the Cure. Raising so much money for Team Mary was incredible and the whole experience of walking in the race was unlike anything I had ever experienced.”
