Sole Sisters participate in Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® for the eleventh year running

For the 11th year running, the Sole Sisters Program took to the streets at the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® in Raleigh, inspiring women and cancer survivors to get active and raising more than $12,000 for breast cancer research.

The group, founded and led by UNC Lineberger’s own Judy Swasey, RN, MSN, ANP, whose ‘day job’ is as a nurse in UNC’s nationally known breast center, helps women who have been inactive transition to a healthier, more active lifestyle through walking and running.

Cece Sumner of Durham said, despite the hot and humid conditions, “It was inspiring to be there. The Sole Sisters training helped me and I loved every minute.”

Jeri Brzozowski, also of Durham, added, “I am not athletic – it was great to have the support of the group and someone to inspire me. I will come back next year!”

The UNC Health Care/Rex team, of which Sole Sisters is a part, won the award for the largest team, marking the 10th time since 1999 that UNC has received the award.
