Join “Team Lymphedema” Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure – March 10, 2012

Team LymphedemaMarch 10, 2012

Saturday, 8 AM – Coconut Point Mall, Estero

Susan G. Komen for the Cure SWFL Affiliate has granted us $148,000 over the past seven years to assist uninsured/underserved breast cancer survivors who are suffering with lymphedema or who are at risk of developing lymphedema.  This race is one of the ways that Komen raises money for these grants.  75% of all money raised stays here in southwest Florida.  Please join our team in support of this effort.

To register – go to www.komenswfl.org – click on “Race for the Cure”.  Click “Register” and then click on “Join a Team”.

Enter “Team Lymphedema” in the Team Name box.  Click on “Join a Team” or “Donate”.  Follow the directions for “First Time Participant” – go to “Next Step” and complete the registration. For those donating, use your credit card to complete the transaction.

Those registering before February 18 will receive their race materials including a tee-shirt at their mailing address.  After that, materials will need to be picked up.

Please encourage others to register or donate.  Registration is $32 through Feb. 25.  We encourage donations – ask 10 people to donate $10 – it all adds up.

If your friends would like to donate by check – please ask that the check be made out to Susan G. Komen for the Cure SWFL.  Turn them in to the team leader on race day or send them to Lymphedema Resources, Inc. at P.O. Box 1115, Estero FL 33929 .

Plan to arrive at the site by 7 AM – parking and traffic will be a challenge.  The team will notify you of the meeting point for “Team Lymphedema” participants at a later date.

 

We look forward to seeing you there.  Thank you for your support.
