Trivia Time for the 550 Relay
EVENT DATE: May 10, 2014
Grab some friends & come play trivia & enjoy Old Chicago's pizza & beer for a great cause! All funds from this Trivia Time fundraiser go to LIVESTRONG & Camp Kesem! Each participant will also receive a $10 gift certificate to Running Wild!!
This summer I will be the Iowa State Captain for an event called the 550 Relay (550relay.com). 5 days, 50 states, 550 runners - this event will be the largest marathon relay ever attempted. The most important aspect is that it raises money for LIVESTRONG & Camp Kesem. I have a personal goal of raising $5,000 while the collective goal is to raise $2.5 million. I am hosting this event to attempt to raise my goal of $5,000!
According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, each year, about 8 million people die from cancer worldwide; many of these deaths can be prevented.
LIVESTRONG empowers the cancer community to address the unmet needs of cancer survivors. To do so, they encourage collaboration, knowledge-sharing and partnership. Then, they develop evidence-based solutions to address both the common and unique problems survivors are facing around the world.
Camp Kesem recognizes and embraces the often-overlooked population of children affected by a parent’s cancer and creates free, life-changing summer camps for those children.
Hope to see you May 10th for some Trivia Time fun!
