The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure is a big deal here in Boise – it’s an incredibly popular event and regularly attracts thousands of people who have been affected by breast cancer. For the past few years, Scentsy has been a sponsor of Boise’s Race for the Cure, and we couldn’t have been prouder to continue that tradition this year.
Scentsy employees in Idaho and Texas, Consultants, and their families recently joined the throngs of bedazzled, sequined, and plumed runners and walkers whose colorful costumes and heartfelt tribute shirts brought poignancy and fun to this important race.
We’ve participated in the Race for the Cure year after year not just because it’s fun, but because it’s a cause we take seriously. Many of you know that Alice Kalilimoku, Scentsy President Heidi Thompson’s mom, is a breast cancer survivor. We’ve had home office employees and Consultants who have battled the disease. Our Charitable Cause Warmer Love, Life, Hope, raised more than $600,000 dollars for the National Breast Cancer Foundation and more than $16,000 for ReThink Breast Cancer in Canada.
You can do your part, too: Participate in your local Race for the Cure. Make a donation – it doesn’t even have to be monetary. Organizations that support breast cancer awareness and research need on-the-ground volunteers, party planners, excellent organizers, fundraisers – your talent, whatever it might be, will find a home somewhere in the fight against this disease.
If you’re already involved, tell us what you’re doing! We would love to hear your story.
