Susan Komen Race for the Cure 2010

Susan Komen Race for the Cure 2010

Susan G. Komen El Paso was founded in 1993. It was Suzie Azar’s idea to bring Race for the Cure to El Paso. Her husband, Dick Azar helped raise the initial seed money from the Chamizal Institute Foundation. Suzie Azar, Pat Farr, Polly L. McFadden and Sandi J. Smith – a passionate, dedicated group of women founded Partners for the Cure and did more than just imagine. More than 1,300 people participated in the First Annual Komen El Paso Race for the Cure and more than $70,000 was raised. Of the funds raised, 75 percent helped Texas Tech University Breast Care Center purchase the first mobile mammography van in El Paso and 25 percent went to Komen National Research.

March is Women's History Month. Suzie Azar is the only female elected mayor of El Paso TX as of 2020. The women who helped create this event are part of a long tradition of women seeing and meeting civic needs.
