GREENVILLE – The time has come to celebrate and remember breast cancer survivors and individuals who have succumbed to the disease. The Greenville Breast Cancer Awareness Committee is proud to announce the upcoming 5K Run/Walk, which is part of the Wayne HealthCare Challenge. The event will take place on July 26, at the Annie Oakley statue in downtown Greenville.  Registration will begin at 6:30 a.m. and the race will start at 8:30 a.m.

The purpose of this race is to keep memories of loved ones and friends alive through the gift of raising public awareness of breast cancer support, and prevention while living a healthy life.

This inspiring event is a great opportunity to honor those who have bravely fought breast cancer. The race proceeds are returned to individuals in the Darke County community who need mammogram screenings, wigs, prosthesis and other supplies to help aid in their treatment and care.

In 2013, the annual Breast Cancer 5K event raised more than $15,000. With your participation and support, we hope to exceed the goal from the previous year.

Race registration forms must be received by July 13 to guarantee a custom tech-shirt. Pre-registration is $25 and race day registration is $30. Children who participate in the Children’s Fun Walk will receive an award for their participation.

To register or find more information, visit www.bca5K.org or call Sherry Smith at 547-2807. You are welcome to drop off your completed registration form at Dave Knapp Ford at 500 Wagner Avenue or mail to the attention of BCA5K, PO Box 56, Greenville, Ohio 45331.
