Event description

Description

Every year, over 2,000 people gather for the annual Strides for the Cure 2K/5K Run, in an effort to
raise awareness and join our fight against cancer here on Guam!

Celebrating its 16th year, this year’s run is scheduled for Saturday, October 7th, 2017. Proceeds raised
from this event will go towards Kids for the Cure (K4C), a cancer education and physical fitness
program for 3rd through 5th grade students. The mission of the K4C program is to teach our youth about
cancer and the different things they can do daily to help reduce cancer and other life threatening diseases.

The Kids for the Cure program launched in 2011, and has had over 6,400 student participants. During
School Year 2016 – 2017, the program was implemented at the elementary schools with
over 950 student participants. Our goal for the upcoming school year is to reach 900 more students
through the K4C program, as well as expand our cancer education efforts in the community.

We’ve made huge strides in educating our youth, but there is still more to be done. It is important for
us to progress as a community and, through our shared resources, increase our commitment to a healthier
GUAM. It will take all of us to beat cancer. We hope you’ll join our efforts for this year’s Strides for the Cure 2K/5K Run.

On behalf of all us at Strides for the Cure and Guam Cancer Care, thank you for your consideration and
support.
