Calling All Lawyers!
Demonstrate your commitment to eradicating breast cancer, support patients fighting this disease and help educate the community by joining Lawyers for the Cure!
Komen Baton Rouge and Race for the Cure have had the generous support of many local attorneys and law firms throughout the years.This participation has been an instrumental part of Komen’s success in our 10-parish service area. In an effort to expand the impact that the Greater Baton Rouge legal community is making in the fight against breast cancer, we are initiating a new Lawyers for the Cure program. Lawyers for the Cure will provide support not only for the Race, but all year long.
The program consists of two parts:
