John Cena and the entire WWE locker room were on hand to present representatives from the Susan G. Komen For The Cure with a check worth $1 million near the end of this week's episode of Monday Night RAW.

Cena, born in West Newbury, Massachusetts, spearheaded the company wide effort to raise money for Susan G. Komen, a charity organization fighting to find a cure for breast cancer, during October, breast cancer awareness month.

Cena, a very popular figure in the WWE, changed his attire for the month, wearing breast cancer themed hats, shirts and wrist bands focusing on the theme of "Rising Above Cancer." All of the attire was made available for purchase online, and 100 percent of the proceeds went to Susan G. Komen.
