I normally do not write about sporting events, and I will have a new beauty review post on Wednesday. However, I wanted to spread word of an event that a student organization which I am apart of at Boston University is hosting. iChasetheCure is hosting their annual 5k to raise awareness and money for pediatric brain cancer.
This event is being held at the BU Sailing Pavilion, Esplande on April 19th, 2014. More information can be found on the Facebook event, iChasetheCure 5K Run Event. If anybody is in the Boston Area and is a runner, feel free to check out our event and I do hope that you guys come and participate in our event! There will be prizes for the fastest runners and if there are any Boston Bruins fans reading, one of the raffle items is a hockey puck SIGNED by player, Chris Kelly. All the money raised from this event is being donated to the PLGA Foundation in order to raise money for more research to be done for pediatric brain cancer. A lot of money is being spend on research for cancer, however only a small amount of that money is being spent on research for pediatric cancer.
If anyone is interested in joining our event, our registration page is, iChasetheCure 5k Registration or if you cannot make it to our event but would still like to donate that can be done here, iChasetheCure Donation. Even if you guys do not want to participate or donate, even spreading the word around about our event will help our cause a lot!
If anyone is joining our event, I would be forever grateful if you mention my name, Joann Li, when they ask who referred you to this event (our club wants us to at least find two people for this event). I do hope that this event does interest some runners and I hope to see you guys at the event!
