Susan G. Komen On the Go™ Tour Brings Life-Saving Messages to the Rider Community

Wednesday, September 2, 2009

The distinctive, pink Komen On the Go™ mobile information center will roll into Rider University on Wednesday, September 9, for a day of interactive and potentially life-saving awareness. Hosted by the Central and South Jersey Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, Komen On the Go™ will be stationed in front of the Moore Library on the Lawrenceville campus on from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

This stop along the nationwide tour aims to teach participants to take charge of their breast health, be empowered to share information with friends, and join the breast cancer movement. The Susan G. Komen On the Go™ mobile experience educates and engages people of all ages in the breast cancer movement where they live, work and play.

The Komen On the Go™ signature bright-pink vehicles convert into an interactive learning center. This fun, hands-on experience features computer kiosks filled of information on the breast cancer movement, life-saving recommendations about breast self-awareness, inspirational videos, and a "graffiti wall" for sharing memories or pledging support for the cause. There will also be information on how to volunteer in your area, details on the Komen Central and South Jersey Race for the Cure on October 4 at Six Flags Great Adventure, and tips on supporting loved ones facing breast cancer.

Radiology Affiliates Imaging (RAI) and the Central and South Jersey Affiliate will also kick off Lawrenceville Goes Pink – a breast cancer awareness program scheduled for throughout September and October.  Businesses and residents will help spread the message of early breast cancer detection by displaying large pink bows in community areas. 

Currently in its sixth cross-country tour, Komen On the Go will be on exhibit more than 80 days in more than 25 communities across the United States, educating and elevating thousands of people with messages of hope. The tour is made possible, in part, by founding sponsor, the Val Skinner Foundation and the LIFE (LPGA Pros In The Fight To Eradicate Breast Cancer) Event series.
