Revlon Run/Walk For Women in Los Angeles – May 12

This will be the 18th year in a row that Sav-on alumni have been involved in the Revlon Run Walk in southern California.    Over the years, Dan Quinn has been the captain of this annual event, comprised of great teams from Sav-on Drugs, Albertsons, and later CVS/pharmacy.  This year, Dan once again returns as Team 3 Returns leader! 
During the course of the annual events, the Sav-on teams  were among the largest in the event and helped to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for this most critical fight of our times:  To save the lives of our Mothers, Sisters, Daughters and friends.   Please join in the event for this great fight and you will experience a day that you will always will see and hear from people whose lives have been saved because of the wonderful advances in the fight that have been developed at the UCLA Cancer Research Center over the past 19 years.
On Saturday, May 12, 2012  TEAM 3 RETURNS will be participating in the 19th Annual EIF Revlon Run/Walk For Women.   It will be an unforgettable day!  As the day starts under a sea of confetti, we will celebrate triumphs, remember those we've lost, share stories, and unite in making a difference in the fight against women's cancers.    If you can't participate in the walk, you can join in the fight by making a pledge or donation on behalf of one of our team members. Your pledge will help fund important research into the cause and cure of women's cancers, prevention, education and support service programs for those women battling cancer and their families.
Every pledge will bring us one step closer to a cure.   Last year 440 alumni and friends helped to raise over $35,000, and that was our first year as an independent team.   This year our goal is $50,000 and I know that we can do it...with your help!!!  If you can't join the team, please consider sponsorship of Dan or any teammates.  To pledge or participate in the run/walk, please click HERE to access the team website.
For those walking in the event,  there will be a BBQ.   Join the team NOW and use the promo code FUNDRAISE before February 29th and you will save $5.00 on your registration fee.   
If you have any questions, please email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) or call Dan.  Hope to see  you on Saturday, May 12, 2012 - Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum at Exposition Park.
