El Paso Electric's Race for the Cure® Team is HUGE

February 17, 2010

The El Paso Electric team will include linemen, meter readers, power plant operators, accountants, customer service reps, engineers and eight breast cancer survivors. The El Paso Electric team numbers more than 280 participants including employees, their families and friends who have signed-up for the 2010 Susan G. Komen El Paso Race for the Cure® on Sunday February 21 at Cohen Stadium. And they will all be wearing electric blue bandanas!!!!

El Paso Electric is donating $10,000 to this year’s Race for the Cure so its employees, their families and friends can participate. The Komen Race for the Cure raises funds and awareness for the fight against breast cancer, celebrates breast cancer survivorship and honors those who have lost their battle to this disease. Seventy-five percent of the funds raised at the Race remain in El Paso to provide breast health research, diagnostics, screening, treatment, services and education. The remaining 25 percent funds national research grants to discover the causes of breast cancer, and ultimately its cures.

“Breast cancer affects thousands every year and all of us know someone who has suffered from this disease,” said David Stevens, El Paso Electric Chief Executive Officer. “We’re proud that El Paso Electric’s most valuable resource, its employees and their families, can spread the breast cancer awareness message to our communities.”
