A Homerun for You and Komen

Major League Baseball’s All Star Game is coming to Anaheim in early July. Unlike the professional baseball players waiting for fan approval, you can plan on being inside Angel Stadium that week, on the warning track. You can be there! Sign up now for the All-Star Game Charity 5K and Fun Run presented by Sports Authority and Nike.

The date is Sunday, July 11. The 5K run begins outside the stadium at 7:30 a.m. and the 1-mile fun run starts at 8 a.m. You finish the race inside, on the warning track. Register at www.allstargame.com.

The win-win about the race is that all proceeds go to four cancer charities, including Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Those dollars can help strike out breast cancer! If you need more motivation, the website gives stories of inspiration and Orange County breast cancer survivor Rebecca Hultquist is profiled there.

You should also check out www.peopleallstars.com. People Magazine is highlighting All Stars Among Us and the Cincinnati Reds are honoring Tracie Metzger, coauthor of the book “Voices of Breast Cancer: The Healing Companion: Stories of Courage, Comfort and Strength.” You can vote for Tracie as many times as you like before June 10.

The All-Star Charity run or walk would be great training for the Komen Orange County Race for the Cure coming up on September 26. Don’t wait too long to register – 8,000 people participated last year at the St. Louis All-Star Charity 5K event.
