Cure-saders Tidbits

Howdy Team!

Thank you all again for registering for the City of Plano Cure-saders team. We are now 21 members strong! The team is made up of people from Parks & Recreation, Legal, the Libraries, Customer & Utilities Services, & Human Resources. I am glad we could all come together for a common cause.

I would also like give a special thank you to all the men on our team. In 2005, over 1,750 mean developed breast cancer and over 350 died from it. In men, breast cancer can happen at any age, but is most common in men who are between 60 and 70 years old. Male breast cancer is not very common. For every 100 cases of breast cancer, less than 1 is in men. You know what they say; REAL men wear pink.

Here a just a few reminders about the upcoming race…

Registering Online registration runs until May 19th. Please forward this link to anyone who is interested: There is a discounted entry fee of $25 for those who register with a team. We want all of your coworkers, family members, and friends! I have a paper registration form for those who do not wish to pay with a credit card.

Team T-shirts – Please interoffice mail me $6 for your team t-shirts. You can also bring it by Carpenter Park Recreation Center. If you require a size XXL, the price is $8, XXXL are $9. This year the t-shirts will be chocolate brown with hot pink writing.

Packet Pickup/T-shirt Blinging Party – Packet pickup will be Thursday, June 4th. You can pick them up between 7 – 9 PM at Carpenter Park Recreation Center at 6701 Coit Road. At that time, we will have fabric paint and other materials available for you to “bling” out the back of your team t-shirt. You could dedicate it someone you love, freehand a fancy design, or keep it simple with stencils. Anything to make it your own! This is also a great time to get together with your teammates.
