BENEFITING: OUTRUN THE SUN INC
EVENT DATE: Sep 30, 2012
Please send me a message if you want one of those awesome t-shirts to the left, which were made by Gongos Research in John's honor.Short sleeve shirts are $20 and long sleeve shirts are $30. The shirts are made of a UV protective material and all proceeds go to Outrun the Sun.
I’m making the commitment to run my first half marathon.
I’ll be running in honor of John Gongos, whose sudden passing from metastatic melanoma on July 25, 2012 shocked thousands. John was a loving father, amazing husband, and influential CEO. See for yourself here: vimeo.com/46388253
Show your support for John and the 501(c)3 his company has chosen, "Outrun the Sun." All proceeds will go to this organization, which is committed to supporting skin cancer education and melanoma research. OTS has strengthened the research programs at Harvard University, Mayo Clinic, University of California-Irvine, University of Chicago, Wake Forest Medical Center, Kimmel Cancer Center and New York University.
You will also have the opportunity to purchase sun-protective apparel that's being created by Gongos Research. Additionally, for every $25 you donate to this page, you'll be entered into a raffle to win a prize (TBA).
If you’d like to go the extra mile, then join my team so you can have your own page to raise funds from friends & family. And if you’d like to do even more, then run or walk 13.1 miles with me at the Brooksie Way Half Marathon in Rochester Hills, MI on Sunday, September 30, 2012. There's also a 5K if you prefer a shorter distance. If races aren’t your thing, you can just come to watch.

The race and fundraiser ends on September 30th so don’t wait to train or donate. Thank you!
