2010 BETH C. WRIGHT 10TH ANNIVERSARY WALK FOR LIFE POSTER
2010 Cancer Center - Walk for Life on May 15!
ADDISON: Mark your calendars and join the Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center’s “Walk for Life” on Saturday May 15 at the Addison Town Hall. The Center is calling for walkers, sponsors and teams to take part in the 10th annual walk. Each participant will have the choice of a 5 mile or 2 mile walk. Registration begins at 8:30. All proceeds support the Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center and the free programs it offers to people living with cancer, their families, and friends.
“This year’s event promises to be an exciting one with fun activities for the whole family. In addition to the walk in honor and memory of people that have been affected by cancer, there will be a kiddie train, face painting and music by Alan Cook and DJ Clyde. We will also have a 50/50 raffle, barbecue lunch, and a bake sale,” remarked Michael Reisman, Executive Director of the Beth C. Wright Center. “The Center has become a local resource for people in Hancock and Washington counties. Hundreds of people have participated in our programs at the Center and locations in Washington County this year.”
“Because the walk is our major fundraiser, we hope to get more people involved this year. In addition to walkers, sponsors and teams, we need volunteer help securing auction items, distributing brochures and posters and help getting the word out,” added Mr. Reisman.
Everyone is invited to take part in the event to help the Beth C. Wright Center reach their $20,000 goal. There are so many ways to join the festivities – you and your friends and family are encouraged to take part in the walk, be an event sponsor, or team member that will raise funds for the walk. It’s not too late to donate an enticing auction item to the Chinese Auction or sign up to be an event volunteer.
Mr. Reisman concluded by saying, “The event is fun for all ages and we hope you will help to make this the best walk ever!”
The Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center is open Monday
through Friday from 9:00 - 5:00. To
