I am honored and proud to be the chair of the 2013 Prevent Cancer Foundation 5k Walk/Run. This will be the fourth year that I have taken part in this event and I am very excited to be a part of making this one a great success to help Stop Cancer Before it Starts!
The countdown to the 5k continues and it is now less than five months away! Registration is now open for the walk/run at Nationals Park on Sunday, September 29 from 8am – noon. Sign up today as an individual or start a team and save $5 off registration. This year’s event will feature a warm up hosted by Dance Trance DC, a 5k course along the waterfront and surrounding area, a chance to test your skills in the Nationals batting cages and information and screenings provided by local medical professionals. Those who register early will also have a chance to participate in community events leading up to the 5K.
To kick off the Prevent Cancer 5k walk/run and to get all participants excited and motivated, we will be hosting a Kickoff Happy Hour at Wilson Tavern in Clarendon on Thursday, June 6, 5-9 pm. Wilson Tavern has generously offered to give 10% of the proceeds from the night back to the Prevent Cancer Foundation. Registration for the event is $8 ahead of time and $10 at the door, registration includes drink and food specials all evening long and a pair of Prevent Cancer Foundations sunglasses. Friends, family and coworkers are all welcome!
August 11 will be this year’s Prevent Cancer Foundation Game Day at Nationals Park. The Nats will be playing against the Phillies that night and special ticket offers and discounts will be available to 5k participants and friends of the Prevent Cancer Foundation.
To register for the Prevent Cancer Foundation 5k Walk/Run today follow this link. We want to kick registration into high-gear, so if you use the promo-code: EARLYBIRD you will receive a $5 discount on you registration fee before June 30, 2013.
We will be sending out information periodically about tickets for our National’s Game Night, Prevent Cancer 5k Walk/Run Kickoff Happy Hour at Wilson Tavern and other great opportunities for teams, families and friends to get together and raise funds and awareness for cancer prevention and early detection! Stay tuned and help us Stop Cancer Before it Starts!
