Legace Leads St. Louis Race For The Cure

But Blues goaltender Manny Legace will be the first to say that fighting off a 100-mph slap shot pales in comparison to the fight his mother faced after being diagnosed with breast cancer more than six years ago.

On Saturday, Legace’s mother, Margaret, lined up with other breast cancer survivors and participated in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.

“She’s very inspirational to me,” Legace said in late March. “She battled hard, lost her hair. She’s battled back and she’s still yelling at me after games.”

According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 178,480 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year alone.

The impact of breast cancer in the Legace family is a big reason why Manny and his wife, Gi, agreed to serve as honorary co-chairs for the 9th Annual Komen St. Louis Race for the Cure. Gi’s mother, Sandy, is a 26-year survivor of breast cancer.

The Legaces’ duties included welcoming the survivors and presenting each of them with a pink rose at the finish line.

“As soon as we got the call (to serve), we couldn’t say yes fast enough,” Legace said. “We’re very proud to do this.”

More than 65,000 people turned out on Saturday to participate in 5k runs, 5k walks and a one-mile fun walk. The event raised more than 2.5 million for breast cancer research.

The Blues, together with FSN Midwest, registered 421 people for this year’s race and raised nearly $10,000 for the cause.

St. Louis is home to one of the largest 5k races in the world. Since 1999, the St. Louis-based Komen chapter has raised more than $10 million for local education, screening, treatment and breast cancer support programs.
