This Mother's Day, hundreds of doctors, nurses, employees, patients, family members and breast cancer survivors from Einstein Healthcare Network will be out in force on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway as Team Einstein supports the 25th Annual Komen Philadelphia Race for the Cure.
To say that Team Einstein is present at the Race is a vast understatement. Among the approximately 100,000 people at the event, one can't help but notice Team Einstein's impressive presence. The team has averaged more than 700 members every year for the past four years.
"In the 25-year history of our Race for the Cure, Team Einstein has had the largest team presence by far," said Elaine I. Grobman, CEO, Susan G. Komen Philadelphia.
In 2011, Komen Philadelphia Race organizers started the "Ultimate Hospital Showdown" to rally local hospitals in support of the Race. Team Einstein embraced the challenge beyond expectations—and every year has taken the Showdown title for the largest team. Moreover, for three of those years, Team Einstein also came in as the top hospital fundraiser.
