Thank you to everyone for their support and patience while we all prepared and weathered
Hurricane Florence. I hope you and your families stayed safe with as little damage as possible
during that awful storm. So, it is time to get back on track and gear back up and turn our town
teal for our special day. I hope you all agree it is too special a day to not make happen. And
even though there had to be a few changes, I still hope you will come out and participate and
help us raise awareness for this terrible disease and the much needed funds to help find a cure.
Recognizing the ovarian cancer survivors, and their special words each year, is truly one of the
highlights of my entire year.

The event will NOT be at Sanderson High School this year, however, the Sertoma Arts Center has offered their location for hosting our event.
The Sertoma Arts center is located at 1400 West Millbrook Rd. Raleigh, NC 27612, on the
Shelley Lake Greenway where the run has always taken place. The walk will also be on the Shelley Lake Greenway.
Event parking will be located at the Raleigh Elks Lodge, 5538 Leadmine Rd. Raleigh, NC 27612, at the corner of Leadmine Rd and West Millbrook Rd. There will be plenty
of signage but always try and carpool if you can, as parking will be limited! There will be 22
passenger minibuses continuously shuttling between these 2 locations.
As always we will have Dunkin Donuts, our awesome DJ, kids area and PDQ to help make our
day extra special. I am looking forward to the cooler weather and all the shade this location
There will not be a registration increase for “day of” registration this year, and hope that is extra
incentive to ask your friends and family to join us!
5K Race Packet pick up will be Thursday, October 25th
from 4-7pm at the North Hills Omega Sports.
