The people who run Portland’s “Race for the Cure” are reaching out to supporters who may be skipping the event because of the Komen Foundation's short-lived decision to cut funding for Planned Parenthood. Komen Oregon CEO Thomas Bruner says the cause is too important to abandon. Some participants dropped out because of the national Komen group's de-funding of Planned Parenthood. But the Oregon affiliate immediately opposed the cut, and Komen quickly restored the funding. Signups are under way now for the Portland Race for the Cure, coming up on Sunday, September 16.
