While the Susan G. Komen Vermont-New Hampshire Race for the Cure is a celebration of all breast cancer survivors, one Vermont or New Hampshire survivor will be singled out for a very special honor, the Survivor of the Year Award.
The Survivor of the Year Award is designed to honor a breast cancer survivor who has celebrated at least two anniversaries of her/his original breast cancer diagnosis, has faced the challenges of the disease and turned them into personal triumphs.
Letters of nomination detailing reasons for nomination - including the nominee's name, address, phone number, and date of original breast cancer diagnosis - should be sent to the Komen VT-NH Race for the Cure, PO Box 2496, Manchester Center, VT 05255. Letters of nomination must be accompanied by two additional letters of support. Nominations must be received by June 15, 2010.
A selection committee will determine the winner after reviewing all submitted nominations; the award will be presented during the 2010 Komen VT-NH Race for the Cure at Hildene Meadows, in Manchester Center, on Saturday, July 17.
