Support the PT Race for the Cure Team

UK Physical Therapy students Nicole Acosta and Lori Beth Lile have created a team for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Lexington. The team will represent UK PT and is formed in honor of Lynn English, whose son, Adam, is the Chair for the Lexington event.

The UK PT Race for the Cure team is asking for the support of the CHS family. Their goal is to raise $2,500. They also welcome new team members, who can register at the link below.

From Nicole: "Proceeds from our community allow people without insurance to obtain a mammogram and also supports research to find a cure for breast cancer. I know most of us know someone who has been through the ordeals of breast cancer and together we can help raise money so we can find a cure soon!"
