Get your running shoes ready for the 8th ANNUAL RUN FOR HOPE on Saturday, August 4, 2012. The goal of the run is to raise awareness of carcinoid cancer, provide education, and give hope . . . while raising funds for carcinoid research and education and the Poudre Valley Cancer Center. Organized by the Lambert family, the run will be held in the City Park, Fort Collins, Colorado. Following the race and lunch, carcinoid/NET specialist Dr. Eugene Woltering from the Ochsner Medical Center–Kenner in Lousiana will be a guest speaker at the Medical Center of The Rockies in Loveland.
Get a team together and join the 2012 journey! There will be one-of-a-kind awards for all age bracket winners, prizes for top teams, a bagpiper, an awards ceremony following the race and much more. And for those who prefer a slower pace, walkers are welcome for the 5K run/walk.
