Five years ago, as soon as her breast cancer treatment ended, Mindy Saifer Cohen put on the pink.
She e-mailed everyone she knew, asking if they’d walk in her name at the annual Race for the Cure. By that first race day, Team Mindy was already a juggernaut.
About 120 people marched by her side to raise money for the cause — so many that they won an award from the race’s organizer, the Susan G. Komen foundation, for assembling the largest entrant in the event’s friends and family division.
They won the next year, and every year after, raising more than $30,000 for Komen.
“Everything we did was Team Mindy,” says the Elkins Park mother of three daughters.
