Librarians Run for the Cure Team

On Sunday, October 2nd, join us in our 8th year by running or walking as a member of the Librarians Run for the Cure Team. To date, we've raised over $140,000 as a National Team. Now is the perfect time for us to represent for Calgary! All library staff and library supporters are welcome. You can register now and choose to pay the registration fee later. If you raise $150 in donations, the $40 registration fee is waived.

We're ready to take your registrations:http://www.runforthecure.com/

Select "Find a Location and Register", choose Calgary, then select "I want to Join a Team". Type "Librarians Run for the Cure" into the Team Name search box and select "Librarians Run for the Cure" under National Team Affiliation.

Keep in mind that you don’t have to run the 5km, you can walk. Or, you can cheer us on from the sidelines. Come on out and then head to the FLA bubbly brunch! Donations are also welcome!

Thank you!
Calgary Team Captain
