The Color Run is more about the memories you make than your mile per minute, It is an event for all fitness levels, ages and backgrounds. It will feature color stations throughout the course. As runners pass through the stations they are showered with colored powder. By the end of the race participants have become virtual rainbow runners representing the different colors for cancer.  It’s a way to remember and celebrate those touched by cancer.

We are proud to announce that the FIRST Georgetown Cancer Center 5K will be held on November 11, 2017 at Georgetown College. We are holding the event to raise awareness and raise money for our Cancer Care Fund.  This fund helps to provide assistance to patients who are have financial struggles during cancer treatment.  We would like to ask for community support in this event.

 

Due to the expense of cancer therapy, assistance is often needed to help cover the cost of gas to and from treatment, groceries and medical expenses. On average we utilize $500 each month and $6,000 annually from this fund for our patients. Unfortunately, our volume continues to grow. This year we have set a goal of raising $8,000 for the Cancer Care Fund. We never want a patient to refuse treatment due to inability to pay or due to barriers with transportation.

 

We sincerely hope you will consider sponsoring this worthwhile event. We also hope you will join us on November 11th not only for the Run/Walk, but to help us in the fight against cancer as we stress the importance of prevention and screening to our community.
