Community post from the Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure

Just got this from a Ciao, Cancer! fan.

Hi Duper,

I recently stumbled upon your blog and then proceeded to read every entry! My father passed away from a GBM 6 years ago, so I can certainly relate to a lot of the things you talk about.  I wanted to write to you to see if you would mention something about an event I’m helping to plan on your blog.  I currently work for Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure in Washington, DC.  We are putting on a 5K Run/Walk on March 6th, 2011 in Florida.  I know you live in NY, but I bet you have readers from Florida! If you wouldn’t mind posting something, I can send you a short blurb, or you can just list our website www.fbc5k.org.  If you want to start a team and either fly to Florida in March (it’d be warmer than NY!) or participate virtually, I can certainly help you do that!

Thanks so much, in advance, for your support!

In hope for a cure,


Read on to learn about the 2011 Florida Brain Cancer 5K.

The 2011 Florida Brain Cancer 5K, hosted by Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure, takes place on March 6th, 2011 at John Prince Park in Lake Worth, FL.  The race begins at 7:30am and will raise funds to support cutting edge brain cancer research projects.  The Florida Brain Cancer 5K is open to participants of all fitness levels, and runners will have the option to be chip timed by AccuChip. The true spirit of the event encourages walkers and runners alike to revel in the community around them and celebrate their fundraising efforts together at this wonderfully spirited event.  Family/Friend Teams and Company Teams will come together with our corporate sponsor partners to enjoy a day of fun, food and music, while providing hope and support to all of our friends and family members affected by this horrible disease.  Please visit www.fbc5k.org to register.
