In September 2003, NATWA together with TAA and WUFI-USA launched “Team Taiwan Race for the Cure” project. Since then, NATWA has been actively encouraging members all across the country to join forces with other local Taiwanese Americans to participate in this fund-raising event for breast cancer research and education. Today, NATWA with its 15 chapters all over the United States and Canada, carries on the major activities and legacy of Team Taiwan, assisted by many of the original founder TA/TC (Taiwanese Canadian) Organizations, regularly participate in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure (for Breast Cancer Research) and The Terry Fox Run (for Cancer Research, in Canada).
Susan G. Komen for the Cure is the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Since 1982, the organization has invested nearly $1 billion to fulfill the promise becoming one of the largest sources of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world. http://www.komen.org/
