Friends, family, co-workers, everyone! Join me this summer for the inaugural MCW Cancer Crush. Cancer Crush is a summer-long run/walk/bike challenge to get active and raise money to fuel lifesaving cancer research at the Medical College of Wisconsin in partnership with Froedtert Hospital. I see this as a great way to give back to the Cancer Center that very literally saved my life. Do it for me. Do it for you. Do it in memory of someone you love. Do it to support the amazing physician researchers at MCW.
Their goal is to have over 2,000 participants – help get to this number! Let’s see how many people we can get to join Run with Renee.
- Register! Sign up now to join my team, Run with Renee.
- Set a personal goal. Set both a goal for the total miles you’ll walk, run or bike during the summer as well as how much you plan to raise for cancer research. Whether your target is 10 miles, 100 miles or 1,000 miles, challenge yourself, your coworkers, or your friends and family and have fun while supporting lifesaving cancer research.
- Spread the word. Tell your friends, family, co-workers — everyone! — about our challenge to raise money for cancer. Join Team Run with Renee!
- Start your challenge. Start your challenge any time this summer. Ride your bike to work during the week, take a stroll during your lunch hour, go for a run after work or take longer rides on the weekend. Let me know if you want to run, walk or bike together this summer! The important thing is to have fun and feel good because you’re doing this for an amazing cause: to help science crush cancer!
Mark your calendar for Saturday, Sept. 22, as we complete the last 1- or 5-miles walk/run, cross the finish line and celebrate at a daylong celebration featuring live entertainment, food and fun! I will be running 5 miles! Join me.
Raising Funds for Cancer Research
Proceeds from Cancer Crush will advance the lifesaving work of researchers at the Medical College of Wisconsin Cancer Research Center and serve cancer patients and their families in Milwaukee and beyond. Join the challenge or make a donation today, and help us reach our goal to raise $400,000.
