The Susan G. Komen Global Race for the Cure is taking place June 5th on the National Mall.
Last year, the race raised $4.7 million for local education and community outreach programs that work tirelessly to assist vulnerable populations. Some organizations that received grants this year include: Whitman-Walker Clinic on 14th Street, Food and Friends, Georgetown University and Sibley Memorial Hospital.
Anyone can sign up for the race here. I’m sure your readers appreciate the Race for the Cure and what its fundraising means within the DC community.”

On May 18, the Columbia Heights Community Marketplace will be partnering with The Heights Restaurant (14th and Kenyon) to raise important funding for the CHCM. Ten percent of all sales from the night will be donated to the CHCM–so the more people eat and drink, the more funding will go to the Marketplace! If you would be interested in helping to spread the word to the community, it would be greatly appreciated!”
