InterContinental San Juan Partners with Puerto Rico Affiliate
Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month



 

ISLA VERDE, September 10, 2009--The InterContinental San Juan Resort & Casino has partnered with the Puerto Rico Affiliate of Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure by becoming the hotel sponsor of the 5K race, scheduled for October 11 at the Roberto Clemente Coliseum.
 
In an effort to raise awareness about breast cancer in October, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the InterContinental San Juan will light its exterior pink by participating in the local Lights For the Cure campaign to encourage women to schedule a mammogram.

The lights go pink at the InterContinental San Juan on October 1 at sunset (6:43 p.m.) and will remain lit throughout the month as a reminder to stay vigilant in the fight for a cure.

At the hotel lighting ceremony, guests and supporters will be able to purchase Susan G. Komen fundraising merchandise to assist in raising awareness.

Other pink initiatives at the resort include promoting a signature drink called Pink Ribbon, comprised of Frozen Strawberry Mix, Sour Mix and Rose Syrup with a hot pink sugar rim and rose petals for garnish. The lobby will also display pink flower arrangements throughout the month.
 
"We want to help educate our guests and employees about the importance of making a difference in the fight against breast cancer," said Sharon Kilmartin, general manager at the InterContinental San Juan. "Our partnership with Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure allows us to educate thousands of travelers and their families.
 
The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, the largest series of 5K runs/fitness walks in the world, raises significant funds and awareness for the fight against breast cancer, celebrates breast cancer survivorship, and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease.

About the Komen Foundation

The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation was established in 1982 by Nancy Brinker to honor the memory of her sister, Susan G. Komen, who died from breast cancer at the age of 36.  Today, the Foundation is an international organization with a network of more than 75,000 volunteers working through local Affiliates and events like the Komen Race for the Cure® to eradicate breast cancer as a life-threatening disease.

A global leader in the fight against breast cancer, the foundation fulfills its mission through support of innovative breast cancer research grants, meritorious awards and educational, scientific and community outreach programs around the world.  Together with its affiliate network, corporate partners and generous donors, the Komen Foundation has raised $750 million for the fight against breast cancer.
