For those of you that are new to my blog, Tiny Oranges was a part of something very special last year when 110+ people joined our Team Tiny Oranges to help find a cure for pediatric cancer in the Cinco de Mayo Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation (PCRF) Run / Walk in Irvine.Together, we made a difference in the lives of children and families affected by pediatric cancer.
Now Team Tiny Oranges is back again to make a difference in 2012! Will you join us?
As a mom, this cause touches me deeply.
Through my experience last year I was profoundly touched and inspired by the people and families involved in the PCRF.
It is a grass-roots organization focused on laboratory research that translates into immediate treatment for children with cancer.
80% of all funds raised for PCRF goes to research.
Now a little about the event!
Taking place on Sunday, May 6th, 2012 in the Irvine Spectrum area, there is an event for everyone including:
50K Bike tour – starting at 6:30am
Half Marathon – starting at 7am
5K Run – starting at 7:15am
10K Run – starting at 7:45am
5K Walk – starting at 9:30am
1K Kids’ Fun Run – starting at 11am
Then at the Expo & Finish Line Fiesta you will find a super fun family event with bounce houses, food, festivities, music & more.
