RACE FOR THE CURE - Race For The Cure Canceled, But The Spirit Lives On
The 2001 Komen New York City Race for The Cure, originally scheduled for September 16, 2001, was rescheduled to September 30, 2001, and ultimately canceled, due to the terrorist attack against our nation on September 11, 2001. However, the spirit behind the largest race in New York City lives on!!
The New York Race For The Cure is one of approximately one hundred Race For The Cures across the country which raise money for breast cancer research and medical screening for underserved women. Last year the New York race raised nearly $3,000,000, much of which was given in grants to local organizations providing this much needed medical screening.
The Law Offices of Christopher James Patsos LLC, a Silver Sponsor of this year's race, has been a sponsor of the race for three years. In addition, Chris is Co-Chair, with Ed Kallen, of THREE MILES OF MEN. Also, for the third straight year, our office's race team, MONA ANGELS, which this year numbered over 60 men and women, was prepared to participate in their usual vocal and spirited manner.
Although the race was canceled, on September 13-15 our law office participated in a Sponsor Expo at Madison Square Garden. Click here to see:

The winner of our drawing will have the choice of seeing "Aida", "Phantom of the Opera", or "Beauty and the Beast" and of going to dinner at "The View" (Marriot Marquis), "Chanterelle", or "Firebird".
