Jacksonville, FL – October 6, 2014

On Saturday, October 4th R2 Logistics’ associates from the Charlotte operations branch joined the 18th annual Charlotte Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. Thousands gathered in Marshall Park Saturday morning to take a stand against breast cancer. About 14,000 registered for the race and thousands more came to show their support.

The scary fact is approximately one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Susan G. Komen for the Cure was founded in 1982 by Nancy Brinker, who had promised her sister Susan G. Komen, who died of breast cancer, that she would work to find a cure. Since 1982, Komen for the Cure has invested $1.9 billion in searching for a cure to breast cancer.

R2 associates participating in the race were Andy Reukauf and Greg Kay. Also in attendance at the race was Charlotte Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams who has lost his mother and several aunts to breast cancer.  He was quoted as saying he’ll keep supporting the race, “to find a cure to stop this deadly disease so it doesn’t take our mothers, our aunties, our sisters and our sister-in-laws. There’s a lot of people out here that’s affected by it and we’re all out here coming together for this common goal.”
