Women's 5k Fight Breast Cancer Classic


GLBT and Allied Women Please sign up for PA Diversity's 5k Women's Classic Team to fight breast cancer. The event is October 16th 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 16 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 gentle 5K 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. We’ve had about 25 to 30 on our team in previous years and would like to see that number increase!. So, please encourage some friends to join us in coming out for a good cause, a great day, some needed exercise, and great food at the end of the race!
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!!
Please email me or give me a call @ 610-434-1483 if I can help with questions/concerns etc. Please send along any new team member's email addresses as this is my main means of contact with the team. More details will follow as race day draws near.
Looking forward to seeing you in the Park and at the breakfast afterwards!,
Anne
