Anderson Plumbing, Heating & Air is once again a proud sponsor the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure which will take place in Balboa Park on Sunday, November 5, 2017.
And once again, 'Find A Cure Fridays' are a part of Anderson’s fundraising effort. Customers needing help with drains, plumbing, heating and air conditioning services can book their appointment on a Friday and Anderson will make a donation to Komen.
According to Mary Jean Anderson, president of Anderson Plumbing, Heating & Air, “We try to support Komen in a number of ways including ‘Find A Cure Fridays’. It’s an easy way for our customers to be part of the fundraising efforts for such a worthy cause. They just have to make their service appointment for a Friday and we make a donation.”
In addition, Anderson employees will have a team in the race. “Our employees really love this race. They have so much fun dressing up in pink and carrying their signs. It’s such a great day and we all feel good to be part of it,” added Anderson.
Supporting Komen is personal for Mary Jean Anderson. “I’m named after my grandmother Mary and my Aunt Jean. Both of these women had breast cancer so our family has witnessed this disease firsthand like many other families. I have a daughter and she has a daughter, so we feel fortunate to be able to do our part to contribute to the good work at Komen to help find a cure for future generations. Free mammograms, breast cancer awareness programs, research and patient care are all positive steps that can help women right here in San Diego.”
Anderson has also partnered with KFMB/CBS8 to help promote participation in the Komen San Diego Race for the Cure. TV spots feature CBS8 News Anchor Barbara Lee Edwards and Mary Jean Anderson using the Komen tagline “More Than Pink” encouraging people to join the fight and make a difference. The Komen San Diego Race for the Cure is consistently one of San Diego’s favorite charity walks attracting 15,000 participants
Created in 1995, the San Diego County Affiliate of Susan G Komen is the only breast cancer organization committed to providing free services and support for every step of the breast cancer journey. 75 cents of every dollar raised in San Diego stays in San Diego. The other 25 cents go to a national pool for breast cancer research. Komen San Diego funds partnerships throughout San Diego County to ensure all women, despite geographic, cultural and financial barriers, have access to breast health services.
