The Lubbock Komen Celebrates Its 20th Anniversary and Provides Information on the Upcoming Race for the Cure [AUDIO]

Komen Lubbock Interview

Visiting with Tom Collins and Laura Mac on Monday’s edition of Lubbock’s First News were Ronda Menefee and Nancy Horn from the Lubbock area affiliate of Susan G. Komen. Horn, who is the new director of Lubbock’s Komen, is a cancer survivor, as is Menefee.

Komen is about to celebrate its 20th anniversary in Lubbock with a ribbon-cutting this Thursday, August 14, 5:00 pm at the Komen office which is located at 7412 University. Komen would like to invite anyone and everyone to join them.

Horn said that .75 cents of every dollar stays locally in the Lubbock area to help with early diagnosis of breast cancer and support of newly diagnosed people. Komen Lubbock services a 16 county area, and has in the past raised many millions of dollars for cancer patients. Proceeds also go toward funding the Komen mammogram van, which services the surrounding areas and provides free and potentially life-saving procedures for those that cannot afford a checkup on their own.

The annual Race for the Cure is coming up on Saturday, October 4th at the Lubbock Civic Center, with the race starting at 9:00am. Team registration is available online, as well as through the Komen office. For more information visit their website at
