If you want to join us in the Jerusalem Race for a Cure...

Sign up at

Just back from the press conference where Nancy Brinker, Susan G. Komen's sister, launched the Jerusalem race. It will be open to Christians, Muslims and Jews, Palestinians and Israelis, and anyone from anywhere in the world. I asked Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat at the press conference how he planned to handle the political sensitivities in the city and he promised, "Everyone will be welcome." The race will be around the Old City Walls in Jerusalem. Let the games begin! Sign your team up now. Komen gave its first international research grant to an Israeli science team and the BRCA1 gene was first mapped and discovered in Israel.
