Although the Komen Foundation reversed their immensely unpopular decision to cut funds to Planned Parenthood earlier this year as soon as they realized they stepped in yards of shit, the debacle seems to have affected continued support for Vermont-area Race For The Cure participants and sponsorships. The Vermont-New Hampshire Komen chapter lost $8,000 in donations within the first week that the funding cuts were announced, and now, five months later (well after the reversal of the cuts), race registration is at approximately half the rate it was at last year, with major sponsors having backed out as well. It should also be noted that judging by the El Paso registration rate back in February, they didn't seem to hold a grudge.
