Black Tie International:
Charlotte's 19th Race for a Cure
Charlotte's 19th Race for the Cure this Saturday - Oct. 3rd

Over 250 Queen City Buildings 'Go Pink' in October
CHARLOTTE, NC - For the 19th consecutive year, thousands of people and hundreds of teams will gather in Uptown Charlotte to celebrate progress and renew commitments in the battle against breast cancer. Attracting over 13,000 registered participants last year, the Komen Charlotte Race for the Cure® returns to Marshall Park, rain or shine, on Saturday, October 3, 2015.
DeAngelo Williams, former Carolina Panthers running back and rising star for the Pittsburgh Steelers continues to support the Charlotte race with the Williams Warriors' Team. Williams lost his mother and her four sisters - his aunts - to breast cancer.
Visiting Charlotte last week, Williams told WBTV anchor Molly Grantham, "I still have my Williams Warriors' Team, and I encourage anyone and everyone to join me in the fight against breast cancer..."Click here to join the Williams Warriors' Team

"Those unable to participate can support an individual or team or make a contribution to the cause," said Lynda Anello of Susan G. Komen Charlotte. To register or review a list of teams and individuals to support visit:
Brad Keselowski, famed stock-car driver and recipient of NASCAR's coveted Sprint Cup Series Championship urged "everybody" to participate in Race for the Cure.
Registered participants in the Komen race will receive a coupon for two to attend NASCAR's Drive for the Cure 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Friday, October 9.  Keselowski won this race in 2014. 
"Events like these help raise awareness and money for the battle against breast cancer," said NASCAR Xfinity Series Champion Keselowski.

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina are sponsors of Race for the Cure and Drive for the Cure.
Race for the Cure festivities begin at 6 a.m. featuring a 5K timed race, 5K non-competitive run/walk, one-mile route, Kid's Fun Zone, race expo, Survivor's Village, an official NASCAR Pace Car, and entertainment. The timed run begins at 7:15 a.m. and the walk/run starts at 7:50 a.m.
The Komen race is also a celebration of life where men, women, and children gather to honor survivors and forever fighters (those with metastatic breast cancer) in the battle against cancer and to remember those who have lost their lives to this devastating disease.
Beginning Thursday, October 1, Charlotte will glow pink for the entire month with over 250 buildings participating in the 9th Queen City In Pink Campaign. This annual effort by CREW Charlotte (Commercial Real Estate Women - Charlotte chapter) is designed to promote awareness, highlight organizations, and support and honor those in the breast cancer battle.
On race weekend, McGlohon Theatre in Uptown Charlotte will feature Menopause The Musical: The Survivor Tour, a parody set in a department store featuring classic tunes and four women going through 'the change'. Show producers are donating $50,000 to Susan G. Komen during the 2014-2016 touring period, in addition to $2.00 per ticket sold.
The 19th Annual Komen Charlotte Race for the Cure® is presented locally by Novant Health and Mecklenburg Radiology Associates.
