Event Description

5k run and 1 mile walk will take place at the Berlin Community Center/Berlin Community School.  

50% of the proceeds will be donated to METAvivor* and 50% of the proceeds will be used to fund a local scholarship in Lea's memory.  

*METAvivor is led by volunteers, most of whom are living with metastatic breast cancer. We work to obtain grants and corporate sponsors to support our operational expenses. This allows us to ensure that donations can be entirely dedicated to our research grants that fund the cutting edge research that will ultimately save lives. Unless otherwise specified by the donor, 100% of every donation and 100% of proceeds from every fundraiser (after event expenses) goes into our research grants. http://www.metavivor.org/
