Rockin’ the Race Kick-off!

Breakout your running shoes! The Houston Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® kicked-off the 21st Annual Komen Houston Race for the Cure® season at Marathon Oil Tower yesterday.

The atrium of the Houston skyscraper was filled with excitement as executives from both Marathon Oil Corporation and the Houston Affiliate of Susan G. Komen held a press conference to kick-off the festivities. This year’s race will be held Saturday, October 1 in Downtown Sam Houston Park at 7:45 a.m. and registration is now open on

Clarence Cazalot Jr., Chairman, President and CEO of Marathon Oil Corporation, challenged everyone in attendance to Rock the Race this year and make it the most successful year yet, by raising five million dollars to be used in breast cancer research here in Southeast Texas. Cazalot’s message was received with enthusiasm by the hundreds of spectators adorned in pink clothing.

All attendants were encouraged to wear pink to the press conference in support of the new campaign initiative Susan G. Komen for the Cure® Wear Pink to Work Day. On September 30, the Friday before the largest footrace in Houston, everyone is encouraged to wear pink in an effort to raise awareness of the continual fight against breast cancer and to show Houstonians that the struggle is fought together and not alone.
