On Saturday, May 11, the 31st annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure 5k will be held at Strawbery Banke Museum in Portsmouth, NH. The race is held each year in honor of the millions women and families affected by breast cancer in order to spread awareness of the disease while raising significant funds to help in the fight against it.
This event holds significant meaning for the family of Nathan Johnson, owner of GA business Visions Kitchens and Design, a Hampton-based kitchen and design company.
Danielle Johnson, Nathan’s wife, is running the race this year to show support for her mother and cancer survivor Donna Canney-Marcotte.
“I'm doing this because I love my mom,” says Danielle on her involvement. “I'm so proud of her for what she has done and how she can keep her spirits up even when things are down. She truly is an amazing woman, mother, role model, and friend.”
Visions also donated money to the race in support of the cause—a decision that Nathan describes as a no-brainer.
“Visions was started so I could put family first, and a simple donation is the least I can do” he says. “I will be there with Donna and our sons waiting at the finish line cheering their Mom on together! We are a family, so we help each other out and cheer each other on in all aspects of life.”
Green Alliance is also supporting the event by forming its very own team to race. To join the Green Alliance team, visit www.komenvtnh.org, go to registration and search “The Green Alliance” as your team! If you have any problems, please contact team captain Megan McCann email@example.com.
