Online Registration Now Open for BUDDY'S Race
Online registration is now open for the 20th annual BUDDY’S Race Against Cancer. Be an early bird and sign up now to walk or run with us on Sunday, November 10 at World’s Fair Park.
BUDDY’S Race is a 5K race that supports the Thompson Cancer Survival Center’s Outreach Program. To date the race has raised $5 million to support cancer screenings and education for medically-underserved individuals in East Tennessee.
Online registration is available at www.buddysrace.org
. Registration is $30 for adults and $15 for children (18 and under) for either the 5K or the 1 mile walk in the park. If you aren’t a walker or a runner, there is still a way for you to participate – sign up for the “afternoon nap” option to support the race from the comfort of your couch!
The fundraising goal for the 2013 Race is $475,000, with 6,000 registered participants. Funds raised through the race will provide prostate, skin, colon and cervical cancer screenings and mammography in 18 counties across our region. Sign up now and be a part of saving the lives of our friends and neighbors!
“Seven years ago, our lives were changed when my wife Lisa was diagnosed with cancer,” says Race Co-Chair John McDevitt. “Her doctors are amazed that she has beaten the odds and the obstacles that have seemed to work against her. Miracles do happen, and we want you to join us on our journey to the finish line.”
Thompson Cancer Survival Center is committed to the belief that every person deserves a fighting chance to defeat cancer. This year, we celebrate 20 years of BUDDY’S Race Against Cancer sponsors and participants joining the Center in that fight. Thank you!
