Harrisburg, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/22/2013 -- CashAdvance.com, the leader in connecting consumers to responsible short-term loans online, was happy to announce this week that they would be acting as a sponsor for the Free to Breathe 5K run in Harrisburg, PA.
The Free to Breathe run will take place on August 24th, 2013. It’s a fundraising event to assist vital research programs that are dedicated to doubling the rate of lung cancer survival by 2022. Donations will be used to empower groups to grow research programs and fund new scientific breakthroughs benefiting patients, to evaluate research funding strategies and implement a structure to find the most effective types of research projects in the most efficient ways possible, to forge new partnerships to accelerate lifesaving research, and to empower more people to take action in their communities and raise funds for research. The Harrisburg Free to Breathe event is one of many taking place across the country, from San Diego, California to Lake George, New York.
The event begins at 7:30am on August the 24th with registration and check-in, with a “survivor’s breakfast” following at 7:45. At 8am there will be an expo with entertainment, exhibits, and music, followed by speakers, survivor recognition, and an on-stage rally. At 8:45am the 1-mile walk/run begins, then the 5k run starts at 9:45. At 10:30am there is a Kids’ Dash for participants age 6 and younger. There will also be awards following the run.
Lung cancer survivors are welcome to attend the event for free. Online registration costs $25 for adults, and $10 for children 10 and under. Mail-in registration is $28, and day of registration is $30.
A spokesperson for Cash Advance explained that they were proud to be sponsoring the event, saying, “We were so happy to discover opportunities to support the Free to Breathe organization. Lung cancer accounts for approximately 27% of all cancer deaths and has impacted the lives of far too many families. We fully support Free to Breathe’s mission to double the rate of lung cancer survival, and are proud to be part of making that happen by offering our support to their Harrisburg event. We encourage anyone who is able to look for an event in their area or donate to the organization through its website.”
