We hope that you and your fellow students, families and friends will consider forming a team to participate in this year’s 5K Family Walk for Wellness, Sunday March 10 at Marketplace Mall. It’s a non-competitive, indoor walk, and a chance to get out of the house and be bold in the cold, while raising funds and awareness for Gilda’s Club.
5K Walk for Wellness will feature health, fitness and wellness experts giving demonstrations, live entertainment, healthy snacks for all participants, crafts, bone marrow drive registration from Marrow Drive Rochester, prizes and more!
Registration is $25 per person – and each paid registrant receives a 5K Walk for Wellness t-shirt.
There are great incentives for both individual and team fundraisers:
· Raise $250: Receive a Gilda’s Club Rochester stadium blanket
· Raise $500: Receive a $50 gift card to Zappos.com
· Raise $1,500: Receive a $150 gift card to your choice of Target, Dick’s Sporting Goods or Best Buy
The top individual fundraiser receives a year-long family gym membership to the JCC (Value: $1,200)
The top fundraising team receives tickets to Frontier Field for a 2013 Rochester Red Wings game, with food and beverage provisions
As ever, all funds raised stay in Rochester to benefit the children and teens of Gilda’s Club.
