The Susan G. Komen foundation and the U.S. partnered again this year in the fight against breast cancer’s “Race for the Cure.”  Susan G. Komen foundation is on their 18th year of raising money for breast cancer research. 

This year's race included over 20,000 participants.  Some participants walk, others run and then there are some that cannot make it on the day of the race and register as “Sleep in for the Cure.”

“The importance is that we’re ‘making a difference,” said Captain Marguerite Goulet.  “The South Florida District’s ‘Dream Team’ participated and raised $704 which was 70% of their goal.”  

This year District Dream Team members included Gwendolyn Banks, Patricia Barfield, Dylan Croce, Joseph Croce, Bernardo Deoleo, Astrid Flemmings, Reynaldo Flemings, Marguerite Goulet, Nicole Goulet, Marsha Hennessey, Michael Hennessey, Debbie Hobbs, Mary Jane LaCentra, Paul LaCentra, Charise Lindo, Rose Mannisto, Barbara McCall, Jann Miller, Maxx-Anne Miller, Pretti McNeil, Tayloria McPhee-Johnson, Patricia Nolan, Phyllis Pierre, Katherine Preston, Diana Segreto, Paul Sirois, Iliana Valdes, Juan Vazquez, Georgia Winfield, and Sheia Wright.

The Miami group participated with the Coral Gables Sr. High School, Gablettes Team.  Participants included Miami Officer-In-Charge Administrative Assistant Estrella Noguera, along with her sons Charles and Edward Noguera, and Coral Gables Clerk Ana Mendez and daughter, Alexis, who is captain of the Gablettes.
