Are you CURE-ious?

Did you know that women in the U.S. have a 12 percent chance of developing breast cancer? Did you know that there are also about 2.5 million breast cancer survivors alive in the U.S.?

Located at Gate 9, the bright pink Komen On the Go bus features a hands-on game wheel, graffiti memory wall and computer kiosks full of inspirational videos on breast cancer research and awareness.

Susan G. Komen for the Cure will be “going pink” for the cure today. Komen On the Go encourages fairgoers to pledge support for the cause and of course, wear pink.

Local volunteers guide fairgoers through the bus and encourage them to get involved in the fight against breast cancer by watching an interactive video.

The Komen On the Go bus will be distributing pink stickers, pink ribbon bags, informational handouts and shower cards. This evening, Komen will also honor breast cancer survivors by partnering with the King Action Sports stunt show for Survivor Night. The show begins at 5 p.m. in the Grandstand. We’ll see you there!

About SweetCorn

Katie Ray interned for the N.C. State Fair in 2010. This is her bio from that year: Normally, I’m known as Katie Ray. However, from now on, I’ve decided to be referred to as Sweet Corn—after all, who wouldn’t want to be nicknamed after a vegetable that tastes like candy? Growing up on a small dairy farm, I have always held the N.C. State Fair close to my heart. From the livestock and rabbits to the deep-fried food and rides, I truly do love every aspect of the Fair. Through this blog I hope to spread my enthusiasm for and keep y’all informed about 2010 Fair happenings!
