Time is running out for discounted
registration to The Ninth Annual 5K Walk/Run to benefit the Center for Cancer Care at Griffin Hospital.
family-friendly event is set for 9 a.m. on Sat., Sept. 30 at the Griffin
Hospital Center for Cancer Care, 350 Seymour Ave., Derby. Pre-registration
is encouraged, and the first 500 registered participants will receive t-shirts.
Registration is $25, but will increase to $30 after Sept. 15.
Proceeds are earmarked for special
needs of cancer patients, such as support for transportation, groceries, and
wig and salon services, as well as patient support programs at the Center for
Cancer Care. In
addition to funding direct patient care needs, the proceeds from this year’s 5K
will support the purchase of technological advances in Griffin’s Radiation
Oncology Department to provide exceptional cancer care that is comprehensive,
comforting, and close to home.
Check-in begins at 7:30 a.m. with
the Walk/Run kicking off at 9 a.m. Participants can walk or run individually, or
form a team with their family, friends and co-workers. Participants are
encouraged to collect pledges or purchase a commemorative sign to honor or
memorialize a loved one at the event.
Individuals and teams can register
