Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message…yesterday Tonya, Mila and I participated in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, along with thousands of others and a group of RE/MAX Professionals’ Racers. Together, we were able to raise nearly $1,500 for breast cancer awareness. This year was particularly special to us, because one of our own, Cindy Davis is a breast cancer survivor.

Susan G. Komen has funded more breast cancer research than any other nonprofit and currently is the world’ largest breast cancer organization. Since 1982, Susan G. Komen has raised more than $800 million in research and provided $1.7 billion in funds for screening, education, treatments and support programs than reach thirty countries. Here are some statistics about breast cancer that I feel are important to share with you…

  • One in eight women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
  • Every minute, somewhere in the world, someone dies from breast cancer.
  • Breast cancer impacts women of all ages, socio-economic status or geographic location.
  • At the current rate, 13 million breast cancer deaths around the world will occur in the next 25 years.

As a RE/MAX agent, I am proud to be sponsor of Susan G. Komen and as a corporate sponsor, RE/MAX has pledged to donate $25,000 in 2015. We are also proud to offer the Home for the Cure®, where a donation is made to Susan G. Komen when a home is bought or sold with a RE/MAX agent.

Community is why we do what we do as REALTORS® and I am proud to be among those who selfishly give their time and money to this great organization. Every day we encounter people with a cancer story and to be able to participate in the Phoenix Race for the Cure is an honor. As you move through your week, I want you to think about the ways that you can make a difference…how can you give back? Can you do something more or better? We are all in this together; let’s make it a great week!
