Dear Super Human!
On behalf of Tackles4Cancer you are personally invited to support the 2nd annual Cancer Socks Super Hero 5K/1K Walk-Run on October 20, 2018 in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The event will take place at the beautiful Stude Park located at 1031 Stude St from 7:30AM-10AM. The National Cancer Institute reported that 20% of cancer patients will cancel or delay treatment due to lack of transportation resources. Our mission is to improve the quality of life for cancer patients through transportation. Run, walk, volunteer, or invite your friends to be a super hero!
The event is designed to be a family fun event and we encourage everyone to become a super hero for the day by wearing their favorite super hero costume as we recognize our beloved Breast Cancer Heroes. A post race party will follow the 1K event, with food and plenty of fun for big and little super heroes. The race will also feature a costume contest along with an awards ceremony and NFL guests.
The proceeds will benefit cancer patients that need transportation assistance. Since 2014 Tackles4Cancer has helped raise over $250, 000 while partnering with the American Cancer Society and other charitable organizations. 90% of the proceeds were donated to make an impact in the lives of cancer patients. We provided over 150 rides in 2017 and we are on track to creating a new milestone in 2018 in order to fulfill our mission to improve the quality of life for cancer patients through transportation.
Be a super hero and register today www.tackles4cancer.org !
The proceeds from this event will benefit cancer patients in underserved communities that need transportation assistance.********Each runner will receive a pair of custom Tackles4Cancer Socks, instead of a tshirt along *********
