- On October 13, Cable ONE employees will honor those they have lost to breast cancer and celebrate breast cancer survivors as they participate for the fourth year in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in downtown Phoenix.
Cable ONE Program Manager Mickey Williams coordinates the company’s involvement in the walk, and said that many of the Cable ONE associates who are participating have been directly impacted by this disease.
Williams lost her aunt to breast cancer and said participating in the walk is one small way she feels she can help in the fight against breast cancer.
“My aunt was only 63 when she was diagnosed,” Williams said. “One night she had abdominal pain and went to the emergency room and the next day she was diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer. I want to walk to honor her battle and continue the fight against this disease until we find a cure.”
Cable ONE Treasury Accountant Amy Gaxiola’s grandmother has been a breast cancer survivor for more than 25 years.
“Early detection contributed to my grandmother’s success at beating breast cancer,” Gaxiola said. “I participate in this walk every year to help raise awareness and funds that will be used for treatment, research and screenings.”
The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure Series is the world’s largest and most successful education and fundraising event for breast cancer. The series of 5K runs and fitness walks raises significant funds and awareness for the breast cancer movement, celebrates breast cancer survivorship and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease. More than 1.6 million people now participate in more than 140 races across four continents.
