A team of U.S. Embassy staff and family members enthusiastically participated in the Second Annual Susan G. Komen Bahamas Race for the Cure held in Nassau January 14.  The group - spearheaded by former U.S. Ambassador Ned Siegel and Mrs. Siegel and U.S. Chargé d’ Affaires John Dinkelman - was among the more than 1300 persons who participated in the early morning 5k run/walk that kicked off promptly at 7 a.m. from St. Matthew’s Church and concluded on Paradise Island with a beautiful ‘survivor ceremony’. 

The education and fundraising event for breast cancer was geared to raise awareness and to showcase cancer survivors for their strength and courage.  Proceeds will benefit The Cancer Society of The Bahamas, Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation, Sister Sister Breast Support Group and The Bahamas Breast Cancer Initiative.
