About Katie's Crusaders

Through our nomination process, we will select women recently diagnosed with breast cancer along with their families to play a part in the process of organizing and holding our 2013 event. These women & their families would be recipients of a portion of the race proceeds. The members of Katie's Crusaders would like to invite you to nominate your Crusader. Please include details about their family, where they are from, Breast Cancer diagnosis, and how this has impacted them & their family. Their personal story is paramount in this selection process as is their willingness to be involved in helping us make this race an amazing and successful experience for all the participants, volunteers & sponsors.
