“We are thrilled to have John Cena join us as Grand Marshal as I know his reach will undoubtedly bring attention to the great need in the National Capital Region,” said Komen President and CEO Dr. Judy Salerno. “He’s a tough competitor in the ring, but he has a special place in his heart for this cause and for our work.”
“It is a privilege to serve as Grand Marshal of Komen’s Global Race and help raise awareness and funds for the fight against breast cancer,” said John Cena. “We are committed to using WWE’s global platforms to further the great work that Komen does every day to help turn breast cancer patients into breast cancer survivors.”
WWE and Susan G. Komen have worked together for years, and in 2013 partnered on the “Make Mom Proud” campaign that “called on supporters to do something meaningful for their moms and other important women in the their life.” This year, the Race will launch the start of a week of events teaming up Cena and WWE’s Divas with Komen in support of National Women’s Health Week beginning May 11th.
