Four women of St. Louis radio will serve as Honorary Co-Chairs of the 17th Annual Susan G. Komen St. Louis Race for the Cure®. Carol Daniel, Judi Diamond, Jen Myers and Julie Tristan are lending their voices and their support to the local fight against breast cancer.
Carol Daniel began her career at KMOX 1120 AM, “the Voice of St. Louis,” in 1995 as an anchor, reporter and talk show host.
Judi Diamond is the former co-host and executive producer of the award-winning Cornbread morning show on 92.3 WIL. She now hosts her own show on the station.
Jen Myers has been with Y98 for more than 13 years and this year is celebrating a decade of waking up St. Louis as part of the Phillips and Company Morning Show.
Julie Tristan is the co-host of “Billy & Julie in the Morning” on 103.3 KLOU-FM.
“We are excited to have these dynamic women of St. Louis radio serving as Honorary Co-Chairs of the 2015 Komen St. Louis Race for the Cure,” said Helen Chesnut, executive director of Susan G. Komen® St. Louis. “Carol Daniel, Judi Diamond, Jen Myers and Julie Tristan speak to so many in our community every day. With their support of the Komen St. Louis mission to save lives and end breast cancer forever, there is great potential to make a significant impact in the fight against breast cancer in the St. Louis region through the 2015 Komen St. Louis Race.”
The funds raised at the Komen St. Louis Race will directly impact the breast health needs of local women, men and families.
Seventy-five percent of the net funds raised by Komen St. Louis stays in the local community to fund life-saving breast cancer screening, breast health education and patient navigation programs. The remaining 25 percent funds cutting-edge breast cancer research in St. Louis and beyond.
Registration for the 2015 Komen St. Louis Race for the Cure is open at www.komenstlouis.org/Race.
All Race registration fees, fundraising dollars and donations help give strength to the fight against breast cancer.
