Please sign up for PA Diversity's 5k Women's Classic Team to fight breast cancer. The event is October 17th in Allentown and we'll have a wonderful brunch afterwards: Here's more information and How to sign up...


From PA Diversity Team Captain Anne Huey:

Hello walkers and runners,
It's time for us to sign up for the women's 5k classic to be held on October 17, 2008 in Lehigh Parkway. Don't forget -- this is an event that has an activity level for everyone!  We've got a space for you on our team if you want to run really far -- 5 miles, if you just want to run -- 5K, if you are a competitive walker -- also 5K, or if you would just like to take a walk in the park with about 5000 of your best friends. 
 
This is an opportunity for the women of the GLBT community and their friends to step out against breast and other female cancers, and to be seen as the positive forces we already are, in the community. 
 
Here are the directions for registration -- please register ASAP. 

This year, once again, Trish Sullivan has offered to make all the runners/walkers on the PA DIVERSITY TEAM a sumptuous post-race breakfast at Trish and Liz's house -- where we can revel in our accomplishments!!

So here we go with the details ---
