Flames of Hope

On October 9, 2010 Providence RI turns PINK!

Here is a message from my friends at the Gloria Gemma Foundation:

We are very pleased to announce the kick off of the 2nd Annual Gloria Gemma 5K Run/Walk as well as Torch FUNdraising at Flames of Hope on October 9, 2010. Our inaugural 5K was a new addition to our family of events. The 5K was something we were very excited to share with you, our loyal supporters and new friends. Last year was a learning experience and with all of your valuable feedback it has become our focus.

It was very exciting to see so many people coming together and take a stand for a common cause. To run and walk for those that cannot and those that will again. With over 1,200 participants our first time out and very short notice we were in complete and utter awe. We surpassed our fundraising goal by $10,000 but our return was worth far more.
Our Torch FUNdraising program was a new addition last year as well. It is quite simply an unbelievable, moving experience. It warms your heart and brings tears to your eyes as you look beside you and realize that you are not alone. It is the time to honor our loved ones and cherish our precious moments.

We invite you to take even bigger steps this year. We want to see you, your mothers, your sisters, aunts, grandmothers, cousins, husbands, wives, children, friends, colleagues and even your dogs rally with us in this battle against breast cancer. We are looking for 200 Torch Bearers to take their stand at the Rhode Island State House and 5,000 participants to claim the streets of Providence. Will you help us reach our goal?
