BENEFITING: American Cancer Society
EVENT DATE: Sep 13, 2014
Hosted by Washtenaw County Parks and Recreation Commission and American Cancer Society/ Relay for Life. The Colors of Cancer 5K will be hosted on September 13, 2014 at Rolling Hills County Park in Ypsilanti, MI.
Why is the Colors of Cancer 5K is different than any event that you've been a part of? Generously, 100% of our proceeds from Colors of Cancer 5K will go to ACS and cancer research. 100%! This event is solely for the benefit of others and that is what makes our 5K stand out from some of the others. You can help us spread awareness for not one, but all of the colors of cancer. Each color doesn't just represent a diagnosis, each represents the individuals, friends, families, and strangers who have been affected by it. We are giving you and your organization the chance to be a part of a movement here in Washtenaw County, Michigan, and beyond. Help us support the colors. Join us to finish the fight against cancer!
Our event will promote exercise for all capabilities, happiness for all personalities, and awareness for all of the colors of cancer. We encourage participants to walk, run, skip, jog, or dance their way to the finish line. Every participant will come dressed in white and by the end they will display their support in shades of pink, green, blue, orange, etc. We want to give YOU the chance to create awareness and help support the colors of cancer!
