Led by Team Captain, Kathy DiRusso, The Cup Crusaders have raised over $1.2 MILLION since the team was started in 2005. Over 270 team members contributed to that fundraising total walking in Boston, San Diego, Tampa, DC and Philly as “The Cups”.
Although we are proud of our amazing accomplishments regarding the money we have raised, there is still much work to be done to fuel research to finding a cure. We ARE making progress. Survival rates are rising, new drugs and better treatments are available to those fighting the disease and we proudly support Komen, the organization which remains #2 only to the federal government in funding research.
Many of us walk for loved ones lost to this disease. They should be here for birthdays, and graduations, and weddings, and holidays and vacations etc. They SHOULD still be here. But they are not.
We made a promise to continue walking as we truly believe that step by step, dollar by dollar, we are indeed getting closer to a cure.
WE are The Cup Crusaders………….and WE BELIEVE.
