Check it out on the website:

Our Cancer CARE Committee is planning a 5k footrace and a 1k walk/run to compliment the 2010 Stoneybrook activities. Entitled, Run for the Ribbons, the race will feature colorful ribbons representing all cancer diagnoses and will occur just prior to horse races, bringing together everyone on a joyous day of fun, celebration and fund-raising.

100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Cancer CARE Fund which assists hundreds of patients from our very own community each year. Last year alone, we were able to assist over 400 patients and our 35 CARE-Net volunteers helped over 70 new patients who needed assistance with transportation, medications, food supplements, and a helping hand while they navigate an often overwhelming treatment process. I truly believe that each and every one of us has been effected by the devastation of a cancer diagnosis within our private lives;  be it family, friend, colleague or neighbor……

To make this event run as smoothly as possible, we are asking for volunteers to help out on the day of the race with a multitude of tasks. There is something for everyone! Volunteers for the footrace will receive parking passes to the volunteer lot, a general admission ticket for the entire day’s events (including the steeplechase) and a commemorative T-shirt.


Below is a list of volunteer opportunities. Please look at the list and see if there is a place for you and a friend or two. Then call me or email me with your name, both home & cell phone numbers, and a T-shirt size (s, m, l, xl). I would appreciate hearing from you before Friday, March 19th.  It promises to be an event you’ll be proud to be part of.
