WILMINGTON, NC - Susan G. Komen for the Cure announced on April 4, 2012 it is expanding to 22 counties in the state of North Carolina from the triangle to the coast. The organization will also bring the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure to Wilmington next spring.

With a run planned at the riverwalk in downtown Wilmington, Hilton Wilmington Riverside will be in the center of the run and a proud sponsor.

Along with raising money, the Race for the Cure celebrates survivors and honors those who have lost their battle with this disease. Event coordinators and local leaders hope to have more than 5,000 people take part. "My hat's off to you for the hard work that you do to support breast cancer awareness, breast cancer screening and working toward a final cure for breast cancer," Representative Susi Hamilton (D-18th District of North Carolina) said at a press conference announcing the expansion to our area.

Hilton team members Melissa Fallis, director of catering and Stuart Capps, smerf sales Manager have been actively volunteering for the Susan G. Komen for cure for more than eight months to bring this exciting event to Wilmington.
