Newport News, Va. (PRWEB) October 14, 2014
Point 2 Running Company and Still Easier Than Chemo’s 2nd annual 24-Hour Cancer Hater Challenge will take place Friday, October 17 starting at 4:00 p.m. through 4:00 p.m. Saturday, October 18. The Challenge, which Tidewater Physical Therapy and Tidewater Performance are honored to sponsor again this year, features prizes for the top fundraiser, hourly raffle drawings, food provided by Chick-Fil-A, and much more.
“Our generous sponsors have made possible a ton of really awesome perks,” says Andrea Lehmkuhler, manager of Point 2. “Each participant will receive a technical shirt and swag bag. Plus, the more money you raise the more raffle tickets you get!”
By stepping up to the challenge (and onto a treadmill) cancer haters help support local cancer research at VCU Massey Cancer Center and honor those who have battled cancer.
“Participants have a unique opportunity to support local cancer research,” says Briana Kirby, founder of Still Easier Than Chemo. “Our goal is to raise $10,000 to save lives and find a cure right here in Virginia.”

Still Easier Than Chemo began with a vision of carrying a mother’s memory through 12 half marathons in 12 months to raise money for cancer research. In August of 2012, Briana Kirby began her journey and StillEasierThanChemo.com to prove we are all capable of achieving extraordinary things even in desperate times. Little by little, SETC grew into a grassroots fundraising campaign, ultimately raising more than $25,500 for colon cancer research at VCU Massey Cancer Center.
Point 2 Running Company’s mission is to provide exceptional products and world class support to help our customers reach their running, walking and fitness goals.
