This is my favorite time of year. The onset of autumn, one of the most beautiful seasons of the year and certainly breathtaking if you live in New England. Here at Green Mountain at Fox Run we’re lucky to to be blessed with some of the most beautiful scenery in Vermont, including the incredibly picturesque Okemo mountain ski resort right outside our door.
The other important thing about October, and women, is its Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Every year, we join millions of women and the Susan G. Koman Foundation in supporting the search for a cure.
Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In1982 that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure and launched the global breast cancer movement.
“Today, Susan G. Komen for the Cure is the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to events like the Komen Race for the Cure(R), they have invested nearly $1 billion to fulfill the promise, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.”
