The Komen Ozark Affiliate announced Shelley McMillon, wife of Wal-Mart Stores Inc.’s CEO-elect Doug McMillon, will be the honorary chair for the 2014 Annual Komen Ozark Race for the Cure on April 26, 2014.
“Shelley has been a long-time supporter of Komen Ozark,” said Mary Alfrey, executive director of the Ozark affiliate. “We are absolutely thrilled to have her on board as our race chair this year. Her enthusiasm and support of our mission, goals and partners will help build awareness of the work Komen Ozark is doing to help people in Northwest Arkansas and the River Valley who are fighting this disease.”
This is the 16th year the race will be held in Northwest Arkansas. On April 26, thousands of people will come together to celebrate the strong men and women who fight this disease. To commemorate the race’s Sweet 16, race organizers have discounted the entry fee through the end of the year.
“You don’t have to look hard to find someone who has been touched by breast cancer. I have seen first hand the unwavering support, compassion and resources the Komen Ozark team provides to patients, their families and friends. I am honored to be part of the team raising awareness of the great work Komen is doing here at home,” McMillon said.
