Lake Merritt 5K Fun Run
Sunday, March 3, 2013 at 8:30 AM (PST)
5K In the East Bay will be hosting a 5K (3mile) FUN RUN at Lake Merritt to raise money for LLS (Leukemia and Lymphoma Society). Please bring your family and friends to support this cause. We encourage people to dress up in fun, colorful, playful (but safe) attire, and have FUN WHILE YOU RUN! If running is not your thing, we do understand, but encourage you to still come out. Come take a stroll with us around the lake, make some new friends, and support a good cause. We will also have a gift for each adult registrant. *Dress up not required to participate
There will be a Kids Lolly Pop Dash before the 5K begins! Kids will receive a playful prize at the end of their race for their participation. Also, Fairyland is located not far from our starting point! These tickets are sold in donation format. Give as little or as much as you like. Please do register your children or email us to let us know if they are going to participate so that we have an idea of a head count.
Pre race we will be providing Peet's coffee. Post race, we will be providing refreshments for all participants, as well as conducting a raffle. The first 20 people to register will receive one entry into our Raffle!

5K In The East Bay
5K In the East Bay is an organization dedicated to making a difference in cancer research and other programs that support our communities interest and growth. We will be hosting 5k runs to raise money towards certain causes. Currently we are working on hosting 5k runs to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). LLS provides a variety of services for patients who are diagnosed with Leukemia or Lymphoma and other blood cancers They also offer services for the patients family members, as well as for the survivors of those who have lost their fight. They provide money for research programs, patient advocacy, community outreach, counseling services, copay assistance and more. We are very excited in doing our part in raising money to help this organization. We not only thank them, but commend them whole heartedly for what they do for our communities. We ourselves have family members who are fighting these cancers, so the work LLS does has touched our homes. Please help us in raising money for a good cause, getting in a work out and having a fantastic time doing it all!! We thank all of you for your support- Tara & Courtney
