Q. Do I get a t-shirt for registering? A. In the last decade, through both organizations (the former national organization and our current local agency), we haven’t raised the price of registration.
We decided as a team to give our participants a way to choose what they’d like to pay over and above the cost of registration. This year, we’ve lowered the cost of the registration to $20 and are now offering several different types of event shirts as options. This also takes the guess work out of our plans so we don’t have the added expense of t-shirts because we can never truly know how many participants to anticipate.
Our VIP attendees (women who are fighting, living with and/or have experienced cancer) will continue to pay a flat fee of $25 which will include a t-shirt and medal to honor their journey.
NOTE: In order to guarantee your shirt will be available for pick up the weekend of the Run, you must have purchased it by Wednesday, April 17.
