San Diego Race for the Cure 5K Event

A successful sales professional with an interest in helping good causes, Thomas (Tom) Spetter has participated in the San Diego Race for a Cure 5K on five separate occasions. Thomas Spetter competed in the race each year from 2000 to 2002 and in 2005 and 2008. By doing so, he has helped raise money to assist Susan G. Komen San Diego in its fight against metastatic breast cancer.

The San Diego Race for the Cure Event is held annually in Balboa Park. The most recent race occurred on November 1, 2015. Traditionally, the race starts early in the morning with a Survivors Ceremony that pays tribute to the many women who have fought and defeated breast cancer. The race itself is a competitive event, but those who wish to simply walk the 3.1 miles among the palm trees of the park are encouraged to do so. Later in the morning, there is a closing ceremony in which awards are presented.

While the Race for a Cure is a charity event, it is also a fun one, and participants are eligible to win prizes, such as free airline and concert tickets, inclusive staycation packages, free massages, and more.
