The fight against cancer goes on and we’re going to win this thing! Hardly anyone I know can say they DON’T have a friend or relative who has battled this terrible disease. The Boot Cancer Fitness Challenge supports the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. Please help us raise funds to win the fight . . . to Boot Cancer.

Boot Cancer takes the boot camp experience and the thrill of adventure racing by combining obstacles, functional exercises and endurance drills. On Sunday, October 10, 2010, Boot Cancer will challenge your strength and stamina. The event will take place at the Collins-Perley Sports Complex in St. Albans. Go to http://www.bootcancer.org to register as a competitor and/or volunteer. Competitors are asked to collect a minimum of $50.00 in pledges and will be grouped by gender and age. Volunteers and competitors will receive a t-shirt and prizes will be awarded.


Registration for Competitors and Volunteers is open for the Boot Cancer Fitness Challenge benefiting the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. The event is October 10, 2010. To register, go to: http://www.active.com/event_detail.cfm?event_id=1876270. Can’t compete or volunteer? You can still make a donation to the event at http://www.active.com/donate/bootcancer. . . . .
