Lubbock’s Race for the Cure: A Spirit of Collaboration

This article was written by Women's Business Forum member, Emily F. Sharp. 

The beginnings of Lubbock’s Race for the Cure happened as a result of sheer will and a focused spirit of collaboration among a tenacious group of women. Having returned from participating in the 1992 Dallas Race for the Cure, my sisters and I were determined to get into the fight against the disease that took our oldest sister, Carolyn, away from us at age 35. I was especially determined that Lubbock should have a race of its own, especially given the medical community here.



What is the Women's Business Forum?

A program for women by women

Here in West Texas, the area around Lubbock and the surrounding communities may seem expansive and widespread. And it is, geographically speaking. If you look closer, the business network out here is actually close knit. To be a successful business owner, you must tap into the network and work together as a community.
