Run/Walk to Eradicate Cancer!

Walk or Run

The Team Spirit event offers both a 10K and a 5K. You also have the option to run or walk either route, but please keep in mind that this is not a race. We have staggered the start times so everyone will finish at approximately the same time and be able to enjoy the home base opportunity drawings, announcements of winning teams and individuals, and the closing ceremonies. To ensure your safety, we encourage you to follow the signage and course marshals. The routes will give you wonderful views of our beautiful Long Beach ocean vistas. We hope you can relax, take in the view, talk with others along the course – and enjoy your walk or run!!  I did the 10K last year; not sure yet which route I'll do this year. Here's the route.

    Hi Dev / Donna,
    I've signed up for the walk and raised my donations. I have no idea where the crab pot is... but I'll do my best to meet you there at 7 am. I'll be coming from Santa Monica. I've got your cell so I'll text you that morning to let you know if I can meet you. Looking forward to it!

    Hope you can join me on the walk on Saturday, October 5, 2013. I will be in front of the Crab Pot at 7:00 - 7:15 if you want to walk with me. We can use the Crab Pot parking lot lots of spaces if you arrive early. The weather should be great for this easy 6 mile walk. WHAT A VIEW! My cell phone number is[masked]-5195. Hope to see you Saturday. WALK ON! Donna Helsley

    Just found out I'll be working OOT this weekend. Another friend is hosting a Meetup group tho', "Hi Dev, sorry you cant make the walk. I will be in front of the Crab Pot at 7:00AM if your group wants to walk with my group. It will be fun! :) DONNA". If you can't attend, still donate to help eradicate cancer.
