Breast Cancer discussion marks Israel Komen race

Breast cancer awareness is the subject of a panel discussion tonight, Wednesday, Oct. 27, 6:30 p.m., at the Jewish Community Center, Squirrel Hill.

Hadassah Greater Pittsburgh Chapter, Pittsburgh Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the National Council of Jewish Women Pittsburgh Section are presenting the program, which coincides with the inaugural Israel Race for the Cure. The funds realized from this race will benefit the women of Israel and breast cancer research at Hadassah Hospital.

A “virtual” Race for the Cure will follow the program in the gym. Leslie Sansone’s Walk at Home team will lead a walking routine, geared for any fitness level.
