“In Celebration Of” and “In Memory Of” Nomination 2017
Every year the Susan G. Komen Northwest Ohio Race for the Cure® pays special tribute to a breast cancer survivor and an inspirational individual who lost their life to breast cancer. The “In Celebration Of” and “In Memory Of” tributes are a way for Susan G. Komen Northwest Ohio to recognize an inspirational breast cancer survivor and an inspirational individual who lost their battle to breast cancer in our service area.
These nominees are ordinary people who have taken an adverse situation and turned it into something positive. One “In Celebration Of” and one “In Memory Of” individual will be chosen for our Toledo event and another two for our Findlay Event.
Nominate Now! Deadline is April 21.
Nominees for the Toledo Event should be from one of the following counties: Defiance, Erie, Fulton, Henry, Huron, Lucas, Ottawa, Paulding, Williams, and Wood in Ohio and Monroe County, Michigan.
Nominees for the Findlay Event should be from one of the following counties: Allen, Auglaize, Crawford, Hancock, Hardin, Logan, Mercer, Putnam, Seneca, Shelby, Van Wert, and Wyandot.
The selected nominee will be recognized on the Race entry form, at Pink at the Park at Fifth Third Field, and at the Survivor Ceremony on Race Day.
The Komen Race for the Cure® committee will select the honoree in early May. Nominations must be completed by April 21, 2017.
Please note: the honoree is selected based on the information provided on the form submitted rather than the number of nominations received.
