Fewer people race for cure after grant debacle

Enrollment for breast-cancer walks, runs is down 30 percent
After it was reported in January that the Komen Race for the Cure charity withdrew grants from Planned Parenthood for breast-cancer screening, many regular supporters of the charity stopped walking and running in races that raise money for breast-cancer awareness. Here, participants walk in a race in Fort Worth, Texas.
For Fort Worth’s April 14 Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, participation declined by 23 percent. Local race founders Joan Katz and Rozanne Rosenthal cheered on runners at the start of the race.
The controversy over funding Planned Parenthood didn’t dissuade Teresa Blackington of Alvaredo from participating in the April 14 Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Fort Worth, Texas.
