September 18th at 9a.m. in Central Park is the 2011 Komen Greater NYC Race for the Cure, an event to raise funds and awareness in the fight against breast cancer. JPMorgan Chase has organized a team to participate in the race; if you live in the New York area and wish to join, click herefor more information.

Blythe Masters has currently raised over $70,000 – far and away the top fundraiser thus far for the event. In addition to her efforts this year, Blythe has consistently been the top fundraiser since she became a part of the organization in 2003. Congratulations to Blythe for her continued support of this valuable cause. If you would like to make a donation on behalf of Blythe Masters to Komen for the Cure, click here.
