Russell’s Pest Control is a proud supporter of the Komen Knoxville Race for the Cure. Here at Russell’s Pest Control we are dedicated to our community and are excited to help with such a worthy cause as Breast Cancer research and support. Did you know that 100% of the proceeds from this race are actually allotted to the cause of breast cancer research and to the support of those fighting the breast cancer battle? In fact, 75% of the funds raised remain in our community to fund programs designed to offer free breast cancer screenings and patient assistance. The other 25% goes to help fund the Susan G. Komen® Grants Program. According to the Susan G. Komen Knoxville website, the “Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® Series is the world’s largest and most successful education and fundraising event for breast cancer ever created.”

The following schedule from the Susan G. Komen Knoxville website is for the 2015 race being held on Saturday October 24, 2015 in World’s Fair Park. Help get the word out and come out to show your support for the fight against breast cancer.
