Join the Team GFS for
The 2012 Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure
Hunt Valley, Maryland
Sunday, October 21, 2012
Walk or run in the 5K or 1-mile Family Walk! Can’t be there in person? Be there in spirit by registering to "Sleep-in for the Cure!"
All walkers, runners, and "sleepers" must register online. All registrants receive a Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure t-shirt and race bib.
Organized by the GFS Parent Association, this is the 15th year that Garrison Forest School has participated in the Race for the Cure. In honor of this milestone, our team goals are 400 members and $15,000. Race for the Cure is the only GFS school-wide community service program involving students, parents, teachers, alumnae, faculty, staff, and friends. Join us as GFS comes together to find a cure for breast cancer!
October 8: Registration deadline to receive a special Team GFS baseball cap!
October 16: Pink and denim Day at GFS. Every GFS community member, regardless of whether he or she has registered, is encouraged to wear pink, denim and/or a Komen Race for the Cure t-shirt to show support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
October 16-23: Pink Ribbon Tree near the GFS Pond. The Race for the Cure Committee is collecting pink ribbons and notes (available in the Searle Athletic Center lobby) from the GFS community. Volunteers will place them on a tree near the pond as a symbol of hope and awareness for our shared efforts in finding a cure for breast cancer.
In 2009, 2010 and 2011, David Berdan, Lower School and Middle School science teacher, was the Overall Winner for the Maryland Race. Check out the training tips he shared in 2011 with Team GFS: click here.
