Minnesota Vikings Joined the 2009 Race for the Cure

The Minnesota Vikings Team joined the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure last Mother’s day to contribute to breast cancer awareness move and to give honor to all breast cancer victims and survivors, as well as those who are just currently battling the disease.

The Vikings members and staff, together with their families joined the 5K run/walk along with the nearly 50,000 individuals, who joined together to help raise money for breast cancer awareness, education and research.

Some of the Vikings who were sighted in the event were LB Chad Greenway, QB John David Booty, OL Brian Daniels, and safety Eric Frampton, Viktor the Viking, and a handful of Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders.

During the event, aside from the participants in the 5k walk/run, a number of booths were also set up for the race. Including them were a Panera stand, a Caribou tent who gives away coffees, and the Vikings booth as well, attended by some of the Vikings players.

The Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, together with its partners, supporters, and contributors, is known to be a global leader against breast cancer. Since 1982, the organization has already invested more than a billion dollars in its dedication to fight breast cancer all over the globe.

Thanks to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure, to all breast cancer fighters, to all the participants in the run, and to every people who help in cancer awareness-that through their own little way, they can be a medium to help spread breast cancer awareness throughout the globe, so that people, especially women, will be educated and enlightened not to fear the diseases but to face it and fight it, and later on save more lives.
