QPWB Goes the Distance – Races for the Cure in Support of the Susan G. Komen Foundation
ORLANDO, Fla. — Quintairos, Prieto, Wood & Boyer, P.A., is pleased to announce its participation in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® when the firm’s Orlando office assembled a team of over 20 lawyers and staff members to raise funds by joining the largest series of 5K runs/fitness walks in the world. QPWB raised funds and awareness for the fight against breast cancer and in doing so, honored those who have lost their battle with the disease and celebrates survivors of the disease.
QPWB raised funds for the event through bakes sales, raffles, and QPWB Lawyers in Pink Tights. All proceeds were donated directly to the Susan G. Komen Foundation and will remain in Central Florida to provide breast cancer education, screening, and treatment for uninsured or underinsured women and for research to discover the causes of breast cancer – and ultimately its cure.
