HEART + SOLE 5K RUN / 2.5K WALK
Date: Saturday, September 17, 2016 (Rain or Shine) Cancelled
Time: 12:30 pm - Registration; 2 pm - Race Begins
Location: Henderson High School
Who has Heart + Sole?
While the race was started as a tribute to one person's memory, the race has become a collection of teams and individuals each running for their own reason. There will be friends and family members celebrating victory over cancer. Others will be encouraging their loved ones in the fight of their life. For those that have lost their battle with cancer, we remember. And for some, the Heart + Sole is a milestone - a personal goal - in their commitment to good health.
The proceeds from Heart + Sole will be used to directly benefit patients and their families by offsetting the costs of cancer care and support services offered by SHiNE at Chester County Hospital. You can be assured that your donation will be used efficiently and effectively. SHiNE is a completely volunteer based organization with medical supervision.
Services provided are based on need and tailored to give every patient every advantage in their battle with cancer
while maintaining an overhead of less than 2%. Through your generosity, SHiNE will be able to continue these programs and look for new ways to lessen the burdens of cancer by helping the patient confront the challenges of cancer with dignity, determination and hope.

Meet a Few of the Teams
TEAM GATTO: Josephine Gatto lived a life focused on her family, friends and community. Although Josephine lost her battle with small cell lung cancer in November 2010, it was her desire to help others - especially women - in their fight by supporting The Cancer Program of Chester County Hospital.
Donations to the hospital are used to support patient programs like anti-nausea medication assistance, transportation assistance, funding for follow up care for patients who have no insurance who have undergone one of our free breast or skin cancer screenings, reimbursement for massage therapy sessions, and the Living With Cancer Program, which offers financial assistance for patients to pay a home bill, to buy a wig or to pay directly for a service which the patient needs, the Coping with Cancer Together program and cutting edge technology.
TEAM KHATTABI: Fatiha Khattabi, the caring mother of three, lost the difficult battle to stomach cancer at age 35 after months of treatment and therapy. Fatiha worked all her life to provide her children with the best education and inspired many others to pursue their dreams. She was very generous to her friends and family and was often seen volunteering in her community and at her local mosque. It would be an honor for her to bring the community together in support of the fight against cancer while enjoying the beautiful weather. It would mean everything to her to see the smiles as people overcome their hurdles, because to her, nothing was impossible.
Additional Heart + Sole T-Shirts, designed by Henderson High School students, are available for $10 each.
