The Bloomington-Normal Jaycees Present
Each year 35,000 Americans are diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer, in which less than 5% of those survive past a year. Studies show that Pancreatic Cancer has the highest death rate of all cancers. WHY????? By the time Pancreatic Cancer is discovered, it is too late. How can this be changed? With early detection, awareness, and research for a better treatment. You can help, by participating in the Bloomington-Normal Jaycees Tulip 5k Walk/Run for a Cure, where proceeds from this event will be donated to help find a cure to pancreatic cancer.
The 2012 Tulip 5k occurred on April 22nd at White Oak Park Trail in Bloomington, IL and was a Huge success! With your help, we were able to raise $4800 for the Siteman Cancer Center. This event grows year after and year and is one the chairwomen, Katy Griesemer has a great amount of passion about.
This year we are trying to beat our accomplishments of last year’s $4800 and we need you to come out and join us for the race!
When: April 14th
Race starts at 1pm
