Father's Day Run!!!!!!

Sunday, June 17th Father's Day

On Father's Day , the biggest event in our charity's history will take place. The American Cancer Society(ACS) is holding a 5k Father's Day run named Run for Dad at Mercer County Park in West Windsor, Nj. The race starts promptly at 9 am but I am asking all For My Father Team members and supporters to report at 8am for race number pickup and pictures. The cost of the race is $17 per person plus $5 if you do not have a For My Father team shirt. Supporters are asked to pay $5 for a supporters' shirt. Over the weekend I will be putting together information packets that will contain: an Entry form, New Sponsorship Form, Race Details, Directions, and a Donation envelope. You can pick these up from me or from the person who has recruited you for the race. I will need the entry form and fees by June, 15th so that I may get everything in order for the race.

As of right now, there will be between 20-30 team members running/walking the 5k race. We are going to donate 25% of all offline donations to the American Cancer Society. I am asking team members and supporters to bring a picture of a loved one who was taken by cancer or someone who is battling it now. These people are our inspiration for running, we will honor them at the race.

To everyone who has started collecting donations please accept cash or have them make checks out to Andrew Hayward.

During the award ceremony, I will be presenting someone from ACS a blown up check representing our donation to ACS.

These couple of weeks before the race, this website will be slightly updated to better inform our growing public.

Lastly, to those who use myspace, I ask that you add www.myspace.com/formyfather as a friend and from now till Father's Day you make it your number 1 Friend

More information coming soon..............
