Registration is now open for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure on June 5th, one of the area’s biggest events that raises millions of dollars for local community groups. Here at We Love DC (a pro-boobs organization), we think the event is so worthwhile that we’ve compiled the top ten reasons you should sign up for it:
10. You don’t even have to show up! You can register to run or walk the 5K, but you can also Sleep In for the Cure. And you still get a t-shirt out of it, while raising money for a worthwhile cause. All you non-runners out there– you can now participate in a charity run that doesn’t involve running!
9. You’ll be running for women everywhere. When you see the “In Memory Of” and “In Celebration Of” tags everywhere on race day, you’ll be reminded that virtually everyone knows someone that’s been affected by breast cancer. You’re running for mothers, sisters, daughters, girlfriends, wives, aunts, friends and co-workers everywhere.
8. You can be a part of DC’s largest athletic event. Last year, 45,000 people participated (by either walking, running, or sleeping in) in the Race for the Cure, and 50,000 are expected this year. And not only is it the biggest race in DC, it’s the largest 5K in the country.
