NEW YORK, N.Y. – Members of the Pace University athletics community took some time on Sunday, Sept. 10 to participate in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in New York City. More than 90 Pace participants were involved in the event, including student-athletes from softball and women’s lacrosse, along with students from Phi Sigma Sigma sorority. In fact, the Setter group won the award for Largest College/University Team for the 27th time.
“Breast cancer is a reality for too many people,” said Softball Head Coach and Associate Athletics Director Claudia Stabile. “To be a part of such an incredible event that recognizes survivors, those that are in the midst of their battle with cancer and those who have lost loved ones is very moving. We were proud to march among the thousands of people who joined together for a common cause—to find a cure.”
Coach Stabile and the Pace Softball team took part in the event for the ninth time. The Susan G. Komen Foundation has invested over $2.6 billion to programs and research in over 30 countries. The organization is the only one of its kind to address breast cancer from numerous angles investing in research, community health, global outreach and public policy initiatives.
