Susan G. Komen Race For The Cure: Team Stump A Lump

Family & Friends,

As many of you know, I’ve organized a team this year for the Susan G. Komen National Race for the Cure... and I'd LOVE for you to be a part of it!! It is a 5k (3.1 mile) walk/run to help eradicate breast cancer and this year it is going to be held on Saturday, June 2nd. You can read all about the foundation on their website. It's their 25th anniversary...so this should be a really fun event in addition to the race!

We're returning to an old favorite for our team name this year ...Team Stump A Lump !!!

Race Logistics:
When: Saturday, June 2nd
Where:National Mall, Washington, D.C.
Event Schedule:
6:45 am Pre-Race Rally
The National Mall (between 3rd St., NW & 7th St., NW)

7:00 am Parade of Pink
The National Mall (between 3rd St., NW & 7th St., NW)

8:15 am Walker Start 9th St., NW & Constitution Ave., NW

There are several options for registration: General Race Member (by May 4th: $35), Kids ($25), and Sleep-In For The Cure (some mornings this feels like the most attractive option: $40). BABIES AND STROLLERS ARE WELCOME...but must participate as walkers (you'll start 15 minutes later than the runners).

Keep an eye out for a future blog post with information about our online store (all proceeds go directly to the Susan G. Komen Foundation) which will have such lovely items as shirts, BBQ aprons, coaster tiles, mugs, baby clothes, hats, and several other goodies all emblazoned with our team logo!!
