Second Annual BRIGHT Run

The Juravinski Cancer Centre's (JCC) Breast Disease Site Team hosts the second annual BRIGHT Run/Walk at the Dundas Valley Conservation Area on Saturday, September 12, 2009, from 8:30 am to 1:00 pm.
BRIGHT stands for Breast Cancer Research In Greater Hamilton Today and underscores the commitment the JCC's Breast Disease Site team has to its patients through high quality care and leading-edge research that has advanced the treatment of breast cancer patients locally, nationally and around the world. All proceeds from BRIGHT will support important breast cancer research in Hamilton.
BRIGHT Run participants have the option of participating in a 1 km or 5 km walk or a 5 km run along the scenic Dundas Valley Rail Trail.
Last year’s inaugural BRIGHT event was a huge success with nearly 1000 participants helping to raise over $250,000. This year, we look forward to having more people come together for not just a fundraiser, but a celebration of community, strength and hope.
To register for the BRIGHT Run/Walk visit http://www.jcc.hhsc.ca/BRIGHT or call 905-521-2100 ext. 44844.
