On March 11th, several team members from our Southern CA facilities participated in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® at the iconic Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium. Participants experienced a full day of events beginning with the survivor’s parade and the celebration of life ceremony. Survivors of breast cancer proudly stood on stage for the opening ceremonies before the races began.
Decore-ative Specialties’ team members participated in an assortment of events including the 10K Race, the 5K Race, the 5K Run/Walk, and the Kids Ballpark Fun Run. All activities celebrated breast cancer survivors while remembering those who had lost their courageous battle. The event was hosted by the Susan G. Komen Los Angeles County, a non-profit organization focused on raising breast cancer awareness in the local communities. For more information about this event, please visit
