16 Apr Komen San Diego Welcomes 2017 Race for the Cure Teams Chair
Amy Keir White is volunteering as this year’s Race for the Cure Teams Chair. White was inspired by Susan G. Komen San Diego after attending the last few “Screens, Genes & the Choices We Make” dinner symposiums. She looks forward to providing education and guidance through volunteer opportunities for those affected with breast cancer so that they can get the answers and the support they need to survive and thrive. Amy is excited to reconnect in a new way with business leaders and donors in San Diego to educate and inspire them to be a part of the Race for the Cure.
White is a wife and mother of three children, enjoys running, golfing, soccer games and giving back. Amy has connected with the community throughout her life from knocking on doors for her elementary school jog-a-thon to her previous involvement as a Board Member for Junior Achievement of San Diego. Amy graduated from San Diego State University with an education major (Liberal Studies II) where she supported the community through her involvement as a Pi Phi focusing on children literacy. She has recently changed careers after 25 years in the marketing/advertising industry to a new adventure in real estate. In her past role as Local Sales Manager at Cox Media she worked with top local and national business owners to connect them with the San Diego community and help make a difference. She also developed marketing campaigns to bring awareness of the services, support and successes of San Diego’s various non-profits, including Cox Cares and the City of San Diego. In her leadership experience she was responsible for training the sales team with community outreach efforts both personally and professionally for their clients. Amy’s community experience beyond Jr. Achievement includes Board Member for St Cyril Elementary (LA), volunteering for the Ronald McDonald House, Jr. Seau Foundation (Celebrity Golf Tournament) as well as chairing school events like “Cabaret Night” at the local middle school or volunteering for a LA Galaxy Soccer of SD fundraiser. She is now building a career in real estate and continues to volunteer in the community through her passion for education and drive to make a difference.
The reward for this type of work is more than money could buy! – Amy White
