Cory Watson Cares: 2018 Komen North Central Alabama Race for the Cure

| Read Time: 2 minutes

2018 marks Cory Watson Attorney’s 19th year in the fight against breast cancer in our community and as a sponsor of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® in North Central Alabama. Cory Watson is proud to support this life-saving event by racing and fundraising for breast cancer treatment and research. The race will take place on Saturday, Oct. 13 at Regions Field in Birmingham, Ala.


To date, Cory Watson Attorneys has dedicated more than $200,000 to the foundation since 1999. Through its Cory Watson Cares philanthropic program, the law firm generates donations, raises awareness, and supports breast cancer patients and survivors at the annual Race for the Cure.

Their sponsorship provides support necessary to fund medical research programs at UAB and community education through the Susan G. Komen Foundation, as well as provide vital breast cancer screenings and treatment initiatives throughout local service areas to help those in need.

“As the Cory Watson family has grown, so has our love and support for this cause,” said firm co-founder Leila Watson. “Hundreds of our employees, clients and their families participate in the race each year, and we are passionate about finding a cure. We do this because we care.”


The firm’s long-standing partnership and consistent support of Susan G. Komen comes from deep roots.

In 1991, Cory Watson Attorneys represented a large group of women who had been diagnosed with breast cancer and received faulty implants as part of their reconstructive surgeries. They asked Cory Watson to fight for justice on their behalf. Firm co-founders Ernest Cory and Leila Watson were inspired to give back to breast cancer awareness to recognize and honor their brave clients.

Watson has personally served as legal advisor for the North Central Alabama Komen Foundation chapter since 2001, and firm co-founder Ernest Cory served on their board of directors for many years.

“I am proud of Cory Watson’s longstanding commitment to the fight,” said Cory. “Long before becoming a sponsor of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, we have had a passion for helping women in the battle against breast cancer. As we plan for our 20th year of partnership with Komen, Cory Watson continues to find new ways to fuel the spirit of those living with this disease.”
