Join the KNOW

KNOW Project is once again ready to join the Susan G. Komen Global Race for the Cure on Saturday May 10, 2014. The name of our team is KNOW, and our goal is to create breast cancer awareness among newly arrived refugees, asylees and immigrants in the DC metro area. Last year our team raised $565 and this year we hope to raise $750.

We can only achieve this goal with your generous help and dedication.
