On May 8, 2011, the AnswerNet team was honored to walk in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Philadelphia, PA. Co-workers, friends, family and millions of others joined together for this charitable cause. As part of the world’s largest breast cancer organization, the Philadelphia branch of Susan G. Komen for the Cure embraces hundreds of thousands of people in the community who share in the Komen vision to end breast cancer forever.
Gary A. Pudles, President and CEO of AnswerNet, is an avid supporter of breast cancer awareness and prevention. His grandmother, a breast cancer survivor, inspired Mr. Pudles to do the walk. “She had a healthcare plan and could afford the treatment that saved her life,” he states. “But there are millions of women out there who cannot. What’s worse, many women get a mammogram and are diagnosed but then don’t have the resources to do anything about it. They simply have to let the breast cancer run its course…and we all know where that course will end if left untreated.”
The counties served by the Komen Philadelphia branch are:
- Pennsylvania: Berks, Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Lancaster, Lehigh, Montgomery, Philadelphia, York
- New Jersey: Camden County
- Delaware: Kent, New Castle, Sussex
