The largest Intelligence Wing in the Air National Guard won the largest team competition at the Wichita Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure on September 26, 2009. This first-year team from the 184th Intelligence Wing at McConnell Air Force Base, Kansas, placed first in a field of 245 local teams.

"As Guardsmen, we serve our state and community, and today that means celebrating our fellow Kansans who have beat this disease," said team member Capt Alyson Stockton.

Nearly 130 Fighting Jayhawks and their friends and families registered to walk or run a 5K or 1 mile race to raise funds and awareness for breast
cancer. An additional 35 unit members provided parking support and barricade management for the race that curved through the residential neighborhood.  All told, the team raised nearly $2,000 for the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

"We all know someone who's been impacted in some fashion by the big "C,"  said Col Michael Foster, 184th Wing Commander. "It's very rewarding to be able to participate and support this wonderful community event. It was a beautiful fall day and I found it very inspirational to be associated with over 7600 folks raising awareness and resources for a noble cause."
