Irvine, CA (PRWEB) November 12, 2009
The Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation (PCRF) announced the official opening of registration and fundraising efforts for the 2010 Cinco de Mayo Half Marathon and 10K Run, 5K Run/Walk, and 1K Kids Fun Run. The 2010 event will be held on May 2, 2010 from 7:00 - 11:30am at the Irvine Spectrum Center. Once again sponsors, walkers, and runners will join PCRF in helping fund research that will find a cure for pediatric cancer. This wonderful community event will have all of the fun that runners have come to know and love. In the Half Marathon, runners will travel through Irvine’s beautiful tree-lined running and biking trails, parks and lakes.
PCRF is offering special pricing now through April 15, 2010, with immediate major savings of off race day prices through December 31, 2009 (see website for details: http://www.cincodemayohalfmarathon.org)
Fundraising efforts are well underway as teams gear up to raise more funds than ever before. PCRF Executive Director Nancy Franks is excited to offer deep discounts for early registration, “The early discounts help us attract more people, form larger teams, and begin fundraising immediately. Most teams are gathered by people who have the mission close to their hearts – families, schools, and businesses affected by pediatric cancer. Word of mouth is the most effective way to form teams and raise significant amounts of money before the event. We are thrilled so many teams will be able to start the process long before they have in previous years.”
