Registration Opens for Breast Cancer 5K Classic

9/18/2008 —

All women students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to join the Penn State Lehigh Valley team in the fight against breast cancer as they participate in the Women’s 5K Classic on Saturday, October 18, 2008 at Lehigh Parkway.

This annual run/walk promotes awareness of breast cancer in the Lehigh Valley and raises money for breast cancer treatment and prevention. Since 1995, the Penn State Lehigh Valley team has helped raise approximately $45,000 for this cause.

The event is a 5-kilometer (3.1 miles) women’s walking/running event that happens rain or shine. Women of all fitness levels are encouraged to lace up and join the fun. Transportation will be available to take participants and volunteers to and from the race. It is strongly recommended to use this transportation because of the limited parking at Lehigh Parkway.

The registration fee has been waived. As such, each participant should pick up a registration form and pledge sheet from the official Women’s 5K Classic registration table in the Penn State Lehigh Valley Concourse, or contact Cindy Nguyen in the Multipurpose Room or e-mail ctn109@psu.edu or Barbara Long in room 137 or e-mail barblong@psu.edu.
