Tampa, FL (PRWEB) May 12, 2011
The international law firm Greenberg Traurig P.A. is a sponsor of the 2011 Miles for Moffitt 5K Run/Walk on May 14, 2011. Richard C. McCrea, Jr., a shareholder in the firm’s Tampa office, has served as Vice Chair of the Miles for Moffitt Board since the first Miles for Moffitt event in 2006. The goal of the race is to raise new funds for cancer research and to increase awareness of the specific research conducted at Moffitt Cancer Center.
Miles for Moffitt will take place at the Sun Dome on the campus of the University of South Florida (USF) in Tampa. This year’s event is expected to attract more than 5,000 participants.
Greenberg Traurig was the presenting sponsor of the 2011 ULTRA Miles for Moffitt 12-hour Endurance Run, the companion fundraising run to the 5K Run. The ULTRA, held at USF on April 30 and May 1, 2011, attracted runners from all over the country.
McCrea, who ran in the ULTRA and recently completed the Boston Marathon, said, “I am honored to be a part of Miles for Moffitt. Every dollar raised by participants goes directly to cancer research at Moffitt. Since its founding, Miles for Moffitt has raised more than $500,000 to benefit cancer research. It has been gratifying to watch the 5K and the ULTRA get bigger and more popular each year.”
Moffitt Cancer Center is the only Florida-based center with the National Cancer Institute designation as a Comprehensive Cancer Center for its excellence in research and contributions to clinical trials, cancer prevention, and cancer control. Moffitt currently has fifteen affiliates in Florida, one in Georgia, and two in Puerto Rico. Miles for Moffitt is a 501(c)(3) entity.
