All GFS students, parents, alumnae, faculty, staff and friends are invited to race, walk or “sleep in” for a cure for breast cancer in the 2015 Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Hunt Valley.

Every dollar and GFS community member make a real difference in finding a cure for breast cancer. Most of the funds raised remain in Maryland for treatment and research.

Highlights:

This is Garrison Forest’s 18th year as a Race for the Cure team. Organized by the Parent Association, Team GFS is the only school-wide community service event at Garrison Forest.

There is lots planned for on-campus education and breast cancer awareness in the weeks leading up to Race Day, including student announcements, Pink & Denim Day, the popular "Change for a Cure" change drive, and more! Stay tuned! 

What's happening on Race Day?

6:15 AM – 10 AM: Come to Team GFS’s tent in the tent village at the corner of Shawan and McCormick Roads. Look for the GFS mini-bus and blue GFS flag beside the tent.

What's there? Complimentary coffee, hot chocolate, water, bagels and pink ribbon-themed goodies, a photo booth, the Grizzly and other fun. Be sure to check out the wonderful “Quilt of Hope” made by the 5th Grade class, which will be donated to the new Carroll Hospital Cancer Center after the race.

7:35 AM: Listen to a GFS Ensemble sing the National Anthem at the start of this year’s Race! LOCATION: Main Stage

7:45 AM: Team GFS and “Run with Roberts” team photos at the GFS tent. All are welcome! Show your pink and blue pride!

8:00 AM: Timed 5K Race begins.

8:30 AM: 1-mile Family Walk or the 5K Family Fun Run begins. The “Run with Roberts” Team will run in the 5K Family Fun Run. Those walking are welcome to walk behind the top team banner!
 

Bring your Team GFS recyclable tote to collect goodies in the Tent Village at the Race.

Thank you, Garrison Forest, for showing your true blue and pink spirit! Together, we are making a difference!

Sincerely,

The Parent Association Race for the Cure Committee
