Jordan Hill of the Los Angeles Lakers and Susan G. Komen Los Angeles County are joining forces for the 2013 ‘Race for the Cure’ to impact the fight against breast cancer for women in the LA area. The 17th annual family friendly event will take place at Dodger Stadium on March 23, 2013 with their 5K and 10K Double Down races. Jordan will be taking part in media opportunities to help spread the word, along with keeping his fans up to date through Twitter and Facebook. Jordan has started, TEAM HILL (http://bit.ly/TeamHill) where fans can join him to ‘Race for the Cure’.
Hill has a special place in his heart for the fight against breast cancer and helping bring awareness to his community. He lost his mother, Carol, to the disease when he was only three. By joining forces with Susan G. Komen Los Angeles County, Jordan hopes to raise awareness about breast health and breast cancer, empowering women to make informed choices about their health and welfare. Jordan hopes to inspire women to run for it, not from it.
‘There is an urgency for women to become aware and educated about early detection.’ says Hill. ‘I am encouraging friends, family and fans to come out, join my team and walk or run with me to help provide mammograms for women in the Los Angeles community.’
