Friday April 21st - Saturday April 22nd

It's that time of year again for the 4th Annual 24 hour Run/Walk For A Cure.  I am so grateful for all of your support in the past and I hope we can continue to keep this event a successful one.  Help us match last year's amazing grand total of over $20,000 donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  

 

Help us end the battle against blood cancers!  This year I am honored and thrilled to have been named Co-Chair of the Virginia's Man & Woman of the Year Campaign for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  As most of you know, last year you all helped me to become the Woman of the Year by raising a total of $104,000 in 10 weeks.  It was an amazing journey and I am so proud of my team and all of you who helped support us.  I am excited to continue my involvement with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society through a leadership role.  LLS is making great strides to find a cure for blood cancers and I invite you to be a part of this movement.  Remember that 100% of your donation will go to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  

 

Join us, at the Orthopaedic & Spine Center's Physical Therapy Center, to save lives one hour at a time.  You can sign up as an individual or as a group (up to 6 people) for one hour time slots during a 24 hour period.  Each hour time slot will be responsible to raise a minimum of $100 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. 

 

Each participant will run or walk on a treadmill at the Physical Therapy Department during their allotted hour.  Snacks and beverages will be provided.  Lots of wonderful items will be raffled off to the participants including last year a $1,000 gift certificate to Hauser's Jewelers was donated!!!!  There will also be a Silent Auction where you can bid on multiple fabulous donated items!
