Richard’s Run Registration Opens

The 19th annual Richard’s Run For Life, this year a virtual 5K, is now open for registration.

To register: https://raceroster.com/events/2020/34307/richards-run-for-life-virtual-5k

We hope to donate $150,000 to Moffitt Cancer Center – adding to the $1.5 million raised in the first 18 years of this event.

Because of health restrictions, this year’s 5K participants will be “running alone, together.” No crowds, no parking or weather challenges. Instead of an after-party, each registrant will receive a $25 gift certificate to the Columbia or Ulele donated by our company.

You can download a free custom bib. We’ve created a Spotify playlist.

Optional Dri-Fit race shirts also are available for another $10 (includes shipping and handling).

Participants will complete the 3.1 miles wherever and whenever they chose, anytime from the start of registration through the end of November.

But the only finish line that matters is finding a cure for cancer. And that has not changed. The work Moffitt does right here in Tampa is life- saving and life-changing. They feature nationally recognized specialists – the best in their fields – dedicated to a cure.

This donation specifically is directed to fulfill a Columbia Restaurant Group $1 million pledge for a Moffitt brachytherapy suite. Brachytherapy uses more targeted internal radiation instead of external radiation. This treatment is highly effective, produces fewer side effects and offers faster recovery times than other treatments.

In addition to treating prostate cancer, brachytherapy also is used on breast, cervical and sarcoma cancers, among others. And this dedicated suite will allow Moffitt to treat twice as many patients.
