As educators, here's our opportunity to make a difference here in Detroit!
Educators for a Cure

Join be part of making a difference, bring your family and friends! The 5k is approximately 6,900 steps towards 10,000 steps for each day.

The 26th ANNUAL KOMEN DETROIT RACE FOR THE CURE will be held on Saturday, May 13, 2017, at Comerica Park this year. The college once again has a team created called Educators for a Cure.

This event is a 5k Run/Walk and registration is open now. We would like to invite everyone in the college to join the Wayne State University community by either walking or running on May 13.

Last year, WSU had 13 teams with 111 participants, and we raised over $10,000. Let's have the College of Education be one of the largest teams this year! Every dollar counts towards saving lives, especially in Metro Detroit where 75% of the race proceeds help uninsured and underinsured women (and men, too) get screening and help. One hundred women in the Detroit area have already been helped this year under just one Komen Detroit grant. Please consider joining the Wayne Cares community on Saturday, May 13, to make a difference in our community.
