Welcome and thank you for visiting our site. Our mission is simple, to raise awareness for the prevention of lung cancer and to raise funds to support cancer research. All proceeds will be donated to the UMASS Cancer Center of Excellence in memory of Gloria Hazen Thisell(4/17/1947-5/1/2009).
Who We Are:
A team of dedicated runners/walkers who will be participating in the 2014 Memorial Day Races in the Berkshires, MA on May 25, 2014. As a team we will be "using our lungs to run for those who cant".
What We Want To Accomplish:
As a team our goal is to raise $5,000 to be donated to the UMASS Cancer Center of Excellence while raising awareness for the prevention of lung cancer.
How You Can Help:
-Donate to help us reach our goal of $5,000.
- Sponsor a team member by donating $1 for every mile run/walked on race day or logged during training runs.
- Do you or someone you know own a business? Consider sponsoring Team Miles Toward a Cure! We would be happy to put your company logo on our official race day tshirt to help us support our cause! The Memorial Day Race foundation has offered to include us in a few press releases so jump on board!!
-Join the Team! Your miles count for so much more when you run to support a charity. Raise money for a cause, and with each mile you log, you'll be making a difference.
