a shameless plug for a great cause

one of the great things about having the ability to write here is that every now and then i can give a shameless plug for something i believe in. this sunday the sprint for cancer 10k and 5k road race will be happening at atlantic station. my company puts on this event every year and the proceeds go 100 percent to the georgia cancer foundation, one of the most amazing charitable organizations i have ever worked with.

i’m on the planning committee for this event, and i can tell you that we are trying to raise more than $70,000 for cancer programs right here in georgia this year. one quick example; through it’s bosom buddies program the gcf provides low cost mammorgrams to any woman in georgia that needs them and cannot afford them.

please think about coming out this weekend and running. we have chip timing and we are giving out technical shirts to both 5k and 10k runners. at $18, it’s probably worth it just for the shirt.

the races start at 8:00 am this sunday from the central park in atlantic station.

thanks so much, from the bottom of my heart, for considering it.

i’ll be floating around the registration area all morning, so stop on over and say hi if you are there.

    The link for the race doesn’t work – it needs a .com. Happy running!

    whoops! thanks for catching that and it’s fixed now. shows what happens when you try to post something quick from the office.

    Thank you for promoting this cause, but shouldn’t it be “RACE AGAINST Cancer?” First of all, nobody sprints a 5k or 10k; secondly, you’ve got to be a messed up individual if you are FOR cancer.

    ‘grammarian’ is suggest that you look up the following french word….le misanthrope. you might find it apropos.
