The Southern Nevada Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the
Cure
® ~ along with those who generously support the organization
with their talent, time and resources ~ is working to better the lives of those
facing breast cancer in our community. Through events like the Komen Southern
Nevada Race for the Cure®, we have invested more than $5.1 million in
local breast health and breast cancer projects in Southern Nevada over the past
16 years. Up to 75 percent of net proceeds generated by the Affiliate provide
grants for innovative community programs that reduce breast cancer mortality
through screening, treatment, education and safety-net services, while the
remaining 25 percent supports groundbreaking breast cancer research grants. In
2011, the Affiliate funded $725,000 in local breast health programs for the
uninsured and underserved in Las Vegas and surrounding service areas, while
providing more than $220,000 to breast cancer research. For more information,

The best boxer of
this era and without question the most talented Floyd Mayweather,
an undefeated seven-time world championship in five weight classes, has shown an
unprecedented mix of speed, power and natural instincts that has translated to a
professional record of 42 wins, 26 knockout and no losses.  His phenomenal
career, which has afforded him record-setting career earnings, has allowed him
to accomplish extraordinary things in and out of the ring.  Mayweather’s
philanthropic efforts and dedication to those people in need motivated him to
found the Floyd Mayweather Jr. Foundation (FMJF) in July of 2007.
Through his own efforts and those of the FMJF, Mayweather has been the driving
force behind large scale food drives, education giveaways for students in need
of school supplies, Toys for Tots collections during the holidays, and many
other ongoing financial donations to organizations in Las Vegas, in his hometown
of Grand Rapids, MI, and across the United States.
