The Women’s Committee of United Auto Workers Local 2382, IAC in Greencastle, participated in the Susan G Komen Race for the Cure on September

7, 2013, at the ISU Stadium in Terre Haute, raising a total of $1,185 by their team. This is their fourth annual Bosom Buddies team participation, and they won second place for the largest team in attendance. These funds were raised from pledge participation, Union T-shirt sales, and donations. The Race for the Cure isn’t just about raising money and walking; You get a great feeling of unity, empowerment and pride in helping others. There is so much to be accomplished when people unite to help others. Hopefully, one day, there will be a cure. The medical industry is currently making so many improvements in treating breast cancer, which affects both women and men.
