Thank you for registering for the Healdsburg Wine Country Half Marathon, to benefit the Breast Cancer Fund!
As part of the event, we encourage you to do additional fundraising to help support the cause. To add to the fun, prizes will be awarded to the top three individual fundraisers and to the top fundraising team.
How it works:
Register here to become a fundraiser, and then customize your fundraising page with a photo and a story about why you're helping to stop breast cancer before it starts. You can then easily send e-mails out to friends and family to solicit their support and begin gathering donations. Everything you raise will directly support the Breast Cancer Fund! The deadline to be included for these incentive prizes is Monday, October 25, 2010.
The Breast Cancer Fund is grateful to Destination Races for hosting this event to benefit the organization. In addition to encouraging participant fundraising, Destination Races is donating $2 per race entry to the organization.
In response to the public health crisis of breast cancer, the Breast Cancer Fund identifies - and advocates for elimination of - the environmental and other preventable causes of the disease. A growing body of scientific evidence points to toxic chemicals and radiation as factors contributing to the high rates of breast cancer. Through public education, advocacy, corporate accountability and other innovative campaigns, the Breast Cancer Fund works to stop breast cancer before it starts.
