Women Against Abuse recognized as a Women’s Champion by Komen

At the 25th Annual Race for the Cure Kick-Off Party on February 6, Susan G. Komen Philadelphia presented Women Against Abuse, along with several other great local organizations, with a Women's Champion award. Women Against Abuse Executive Director Jeannine L. Lisitski attended the party and accepted the award on behalf of our organization. Reflecting on the importance of this award, Susan G. Komen Philadelphia says: "Without these Women's Champions strengthening women in other aspects of individual and communal living, our quest to save lives from breast cancer would be all the more difficult. Komen Philadelphia can move ahead confidently in our mission every day knowing these organizations are working with extraordinary devotion... side by side with us!" We're so thrilled to have been recognized with this terrific honor.
