On October 18, 2009, you may see some familiar faces running the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. The race, which has become the largest series of 5K runs/fitness walks in the world, raises money and awareness to fight breast cancer while celebrating survivors and honoring victims.
Sun, exercise, good people, and breast cancer awareness: is there a better way to spend a Sunday? I think not. The opportunity to get involved was brought to the attention of a few GHCC VISTA members, and we jumped on it. In the spirit of collaboration, we decided to form a team. So far, participants range from fresh to seasoned VISTAs, with some GHCC staff enlisting for the cause. Want to get involved? Click here to visit our team page!
The team is open, and runners/ walkers/joggers of all ages and abilities are invited to enlist. Think the 5K may not be your thing? You can still participate — consider making a donation to our team. We’d love for you to join us on the 18th, even if it is just to watch!
