The Real Housewives of Rural Hall Run for the Cure



By Staff


For the past 14 years, Susan G. Komen of Northwest NC has been hosting the annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. For a group of friends in Rural Hall the reality of breast cancer hit home hard when one of their friends, Cindy Tomlinson, was diagnosed with breast cancer. That was when these friends formed the “Real Housewives of Rural Hall”, goofing on the television show and supporting their friend through her fight against the disease. After Mrs. Tomlinson became a cancer survivor the Real housewives have continued this tradition as they say, “Kicking cancer’s ass one glass of wine at a time.”

The RHRH are made up of Robin Boger, Aimee Mitchell, Cindy Tomlinson, and Sherri Chambers. “Our core group of friends.” Robin told CCD, “They are the kind of friends who you can call in the middle of the night if you need something.”

What began as a way to honor their friends has become a tradition for the ladies and their families as well as a way to raise money for research and awareness about breast cancer and the vicious toll it takes on those who are forced to live through the disease. “You don’t have to do something big to make a difference.” Robin said.

“We’re fun and everyone wants to be us.” Robin jokingly said. After every race day the RHRH heads back to Rural Hall and a rollicking party at the Tomlinson home. “We really do like to have fun and just be together. That we can also raise awareness about this serious issue is just a bonus.”

For 2014 the Susan G. Komen Northwest NC Race will be held on Saturday Sept. 27 at the BB&T Ball Park in Winston-Salem. If you would like to pledge to the efforts of the RHRH and help out an important cause you can find out how to do so HERE.
