Race for Cure

By being involving in different community activities, Taiwanese Americans have showed main stream American that we are a part of the community. 

The local branches of Northern American Taiwanese Women Association organized “Team Taiwan” to participate annually in the local “Race for Cure”. Many other Taiwanese-American organizations come out to show their support. This is an opportunity to enhance the visibility of “Taiwan” as a nation in the local community.
