In honor of this tomorrow’s Komen South Florida Race for the Cure® and in support for survivors and those fighting breast cancer in our community, The Breakers will light its Florentine Fountain pink tonight and Saturday.

The Breakers Palm Beach Goes Pink{Above: A tradition of support, The Breakers PINK in January 2012}

 The Breakers is proud to participate in this year’s Race for the Cure, a tradition we’ve honored for the past 12 years!

Face the hard facts: Rates of breast cancer incidence

* 124.3 new cases per 100,000 women *
* 1.3 per 100,000 men *
* An estimated 232,670 new cases of invasive breast cancer in 2014 *

Through events like Race for the Cure, the South Florida Susan G. Komen affiliate has invested more than $11.6 million in community breast health programs in Palm Beach, Martin and St. Lucie counties.

If you can’t participate in Saturday’s race, you can still make an impact and donate to Komen for the Cure South Florida. Help prevent the preventable, treat the treatable, and put an end to breast cancer forever.

Best of luck to all racers!

    This is very nice. My mother was a breast cancer survivor and I am currently in remission of bladder cancer. I truly hope a cure is found to end this horrible disease. I am especially concerned that breast cancer seems like such a direct threat to so many. For example, my wife and 11 year old daughter have to live with this lingering fear. Praying for a cure!!!!!
