New Balance Japan, Inc. has been a devoted Partner ever since Run for the Cure® Foundation commenced its mission 15 years ago. Each year, New Balance Japan has donated a portion of the proceeds from the sale of its Pink Ribbon line of apparel and shoes. In March, the Foundation received another very generous donation, in the amount of JPY5,038,424.
New Balance Japan is a great example in so many ways. Since 2007, their female staffs have been provided with yearly mammography screenings. The company hires a mammography bus to come to their headquarters so that the top two most common obstacles for getting a mammography are eliminated — the expense and lack of time.
The funds will enable the Foundation to support the Japan Team Oncology Program (J-TOP) to train pathologists and radiologistsーan adequate number of such specialists is lacking in Japanー in order to develop next-generation leaders among Japanese oncology professionals.
We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to New Balance for their enduring partnership and ongoing generous support.
