Sue Leonard, Realtor with RE/MAX Advantage Plus Delray Beach, is a dedicated Susan G.Komen donor. For every home that she sells, Sue donates $100 to Susan G. Komen.
“I’m very thankful for the life I have been blessed with. It’s always been my philosophy that when you have the ability, you should to give back and as soon as I reached a point in my life where I could dedicate the time to do so, I took the opportunity with Susan G. Komen,” says Sue Leonard.
Sue’s life was personally touched by breast cancer when her grandmother lost her fight against the disease at a very young age. While living in Nevada, Sue joined forces with Susan G. Komen and was brought on as Communications Chair of the Northern Nevada Affiliate. Sue, a former International Executive Head Hunter, was able to take her devotion for giving back and combined it with her talent for finding the right people for the right job.
“When I came on board with the Northern Nevada Affiliate, there was one person filling three positions and carrying a great work load. I knew I could put together a team that could relieve the pressure of a one person army and put the Affiliate is a position to focus on raising funds for this important cause,” says Sue Leonard. And that’s exactly what Sue did. Sue put together a team of talented professionals who would go on to raise over $500,000 in charitable funds towards breast care for the local community.
Years later, Sue has not forgotten her Susan G. Komen roots and continues to be active in Race for a Cure and giving back to her community of Delray Beach. It means a great deal to Sue knowing that $0.75 cents of every dollar donated stays local and aids in treatment, and preventative care for those less fortunate, while the balance goes to research to find a cure.
Sue continues to honor her grandmother as well as RE/MAX CEO, Margret Kelly a breast cancer survivor, every year at the West Palm Beach Race for a Cure.
“I have watched a great deal of friends fight the disease and come through it survivors. Supporting the fight against breast cancer gives all these women a fighting chance.”
