8 Days Until The Main Event!

Hello! I am back from the funeral of my 80 year old grandma who was once a breast cancer survivor. I am happy to be honoring her at our Race For The Cure in 8 days. Sorry for the lack of communication this year. I switched jobs in March and haven’t been able to give our team the attention it deserves. Hopefully, I can start answering some of your questions.

Team T-shirts – Team shirts have been ordered. I will be picking them up on Wednesday. I will be interoffice mailing them this year. If you don’t work for the City of Plano anymore, please email me where and when we could meet on Wednesday, 6/9.

Carpool/Caravan – We will meet at Carpenter Park Recreation Center between 6:30 – 6:45 AM on race day. Please park behind the building in the west parking lot by the baseball fields. We will carpool/caravan to the Red Parking Garage on Tennyson Parkway. The line of traffic is always long! All roads in the area will close at 7:30 AM. Attached is a map of the course and parking. If we get separated or you can’t meet us for any reason, we will reconvene at the team photo area. There are flags from different countries there. On the flagpoles are letters. We will meet by the one with the P on it. We will meet there at 7:30 AM to get the picture taken. After that, you are on your own to run, walk, or wheel the race course!

What To Wear – Please wear your team t-shirt. If you do have not a 2010 t-shirt, please wear either your last year’s t-shirt or your 2010 Komen t-shirt. The race bib goes on the front of your shirt.

I Know Someone Who Still Wants On The Team – Tell them to sign up on race day! There will be a registration booth there. The catch is, I cannot get them a team t-shirt.

Chip Timing – Chip timing will be available for $5. If you would like to compete for an award, you must have a chip. If you preregistered for one, it should come in your packet. Runners competing for awards should enter the start corral by 7:45 AM. Timed runners must be registered by 7:45 AM on race morning.

Fundraising – Our fundraising goal is $2,000. Fundraising is optional, but encouraged. You can collect donations online by sending an email from the site. You can also send Thank You Cards. You can also get cash and check donations. If you need a paper form for fundraising, please let me know. There are prizes for those who raise $250 or more.
