    About Susan G. Komen for the Cure®
    Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure and launched the global breast cancer movement. Today, Komen for the Cure is the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to events like the Komen Race for the Cure®, we have invested nearly $1.5 billion to fulfill our promise, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.

    And the winners of our Passion for Pink rug-naming contest are…

    We recently announced the winners of our Passion for Pink rug-naming contest. The Facebook- and blog-based contest was designed to raise awareness about breast cancer and honor those affected by the disease. The two newly named rugs are spin-offs of Company C’s best-selling Garland and Giverny rug designs; now re-colored in shades of pink, the rugs will be named “Karen’s Warrior Rug” and “The Sisters Rug.”

    Company C will donate twenty percent of the retail price of each rug sold to support breast cancer awareness, research and education. In addition, all contest participants will receive one of the new accent rugs, and the namesakes will have their stories featured in Company C’s Spring 2011 catalog.

    “The Sisters Rug,” is named after Allison Moir-Smith of Manchester by the Sea, Massachusestts and her sisters. In Allison’s family of five sisters, four battled breast cancer in the last five years, and the fifth participated in a study to help understand how women’s genes and their environments influence risk of breast cancer. All five sisters are living and well today.

    “Karen’s Warrior Rug” honors Karen List of West Palm Beach, Florida, who first learned of her cancer when she was a young mother of two boys. Karen helped to raise awareness of the disease by becoming a breast health advocate and educator, and was later honored by Susan G. Komen for the Cure as their “Warrior in Pink.” Recently named Chair for the 2011 Race for the Cure, Karen continues to fight “not just for me, but for my fellow warriors.”

    “Our entire organization felt very strongly about supporting this cause and what better way to show our support than through the use of color and design,” said Walter Chapin, co-founder and president. “This contest was part of our larger Passion for Pink initiative, which we started in 2008 and continue to stand behind with the hopes we can inspire colorful living for our customers and all those affected by breast cancer.”

    “Karen’s Warrior Rug” and “The Sisters Rug,” will be available for sale to end consumers in September 2010 at more than 800 specialty retailers nationwide; at company-owned retail stores in Hingham, MA, Portland, ME and Concord, NH; and online at www.companyc.com. Both limited edition rugs are hand-hooked 2-feet by 3-feet accent rugs made of 100 percent wool.

    Thank you to all of those who participated in our Passion for Pink rug-naming contest!
