Run Breast Cancer Out of Town

Last year, Pace had the largest university team at the Susan G. Komen Greater NYC: Race for the Cure. On September 18, make sure to join us again as we lace up our sneakers and run breast cancer right out of town.

On September 18, join the Pace Community as we run for life at the Susan G. Komen Greater NYC: Race for the Cure in Central Park.

This year, more than 1.6 million people (that’s right, 1.6 million) will help raise funds and awareness for the fight against breast cancer at 140 events around the world, making it the largest series of 5k run/walk events in the world.

With more than 110 participants last year, the Pace team once again won for the largest university team. And we want to keep this streak going! Registration has been open since May, but the numbers are not what we want them to be. So what are you waiting for?

The deadline to register is August 31 and you can register online here or by going to www.komennyc.org/race and searching for the “pace university” team.

Participants will receive:
> A Commemorative t-shirt
> A goody bag
> Breakfast
> Transportation from the Westchester Campus to Central Park

Contact Ellen Mandel at emandel@pace.edu or at (914) 261-9226.

If you need any additional incentive, new to this year’s race is a Pledge Prize Program, where participants who take the $250 Challenge will be eligible to win prizes including Komen Race for the Cure merchandise, MP3 players, kitchen appliances, camcorders, flat screen televisions, clothing, and more!

Out of town that weekend? Can’t make the race? You can still make a difference. Back by popular demand—Sleep for the Cure! Register for the race and then spend your Sunday morning sleeping in. Participants can also run or walk.
