BENEFITING: AACR FOUNDATION FOR THE PREVENTION AND CURE OF CANCER

EVENT DATE: Mar 30, 2014

THE STORY:

AACR Foundation is partnering with the Love Run to raise money and awareness for cancer research in 2014. The race will be held on Sunday, March 30, 2014.

The Love Run, Philadelphia’s newest half marathon, offers an impressive course that starts at the Art Museum before winding through Fairmount Park to Martin Luther King Drive and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. We invite you to join us as a runner or volunteer.

Runners can fundraise as part of the official AACR team – AACR Runners for Research. The team with the most members receives an additional $1000 from the race sponsor. Teams with 20 or more participants receive a free tent at the start and finish lines, providing a great opportunity to highlight our organization and the important work that we do on behalf of cancer research.

Volunteers can lend a hand at the race expo on Thursday March 27, Friday March 28 and Saturday, March 29, or at the race itself on Sunday, March 30. The AACR will receive $25 from the race sponsor for every volunteer who signs up on behalf of our organization.

Interested? See below for all the details. Bring your friends and family out to support the AACR at this inaugural event.

Please contact Melissa Topakbashian at melissa.topakbashian@aacr.org or 215-446-6899 with any questions. Please share with your friends and family. We hope to see you there!
