Run for Cancer – Saturday 4 April

I love Saturday races! [cos I work Sundays], and this one caught my interest cos its for a good cause:

Dear family, friends & members of the running community,

I hereby extend an invitation to yourself, family & friends to participate in ‘Ian’s Run for Cancer’ on Saturday 04 April 2009 from the Chalk Hotel. The 10km / 5km event are participation run / walks to raise funds & create awareness about prostate cancer. I have attached a flyer for your information.

The events will start at 7:00am from the Chalk Hotel. Cost to participate is $10.00 with ALL funds raised going to The Cancer Council Queensland.

My father Ian Gale died of prostate cancer on the 11 April 2007, I established this event last year in rememberance of all that he did for me during my life – something which I will never forget.
To remember Ian, I have a very special announcement, which will be reveiled on the morning. This is will a very special occasion & I would love for you to be present.

Registrations will open at 6:00am, with a couple of speeches at 6:50am before the run / walks commence at 7:00am. Afterwards, please book a table & have breakfast at the Chalk Hotel.

Last year, over $6500.00 was raised for the Cancer Council Queensland. If you live out of town or cannot make the event, but would still like to make a donation, then please contact myself & I can send you out a donation form.

Many thanks to our corporate sponsors: Chalk Hotel, Sportsco (Toombul), Active Stride, Brooks, adidas, Nike, The Run Inn, McWilliams Wines, GaleForce Running Squad.
