Media Shines the Spotlight on OC Race

The Sept. 26 Race for the Cure, held at Fashion Island in Newport Beach, is on its way to helping us reach our 2010 fundraising goal of $3 million. The success of the event is due in part to the tremendous support members of the media have shown by informing their readers, listeners and viewers about the Race. We couldn’t have done it without them!

Here are just a few of the great hits we’ve received – click on any of the links to read the full story or view the galleries:
