Free to Breathe Walk in memory of Sue Bangert

From the City of Wayzata Website:

Please WALK with us in celebrating Sue Bangert's life and help raise money for the National Lung Cancer Partnership.

Our mission is to create public awareness of lung cancer and raise money to fund vital research. The walk will not only help accomplish our mission, but bring those together whose lives were enriched by knowing Sue Bangert.

She was a beloved mother, public servant, and friend to many. What better way to honor her memory than to walk among friends and family in the city she loved. Our goal is to match last year's efforts in raising $10,000.

While we cannot promise the great weather we had last year, we can promise that the walk will end in the Muni for fun and refreshments!

Event: Sue Bangert Free to Breathe Walk

Date: Saturday November 6, 2010

Start Time: 11:00 a.m.

Place: Wayzata Bar & Grill "The Muni"

Registration starts at 10:00 a.m.

Distance: 5K

In lieu of registration, we are asking that all participants donate their $15 registration fee to the Free to Breath website. Please go to the link below, click "Donate to Sarah", and follow the prompts. Your donation is tax deductable! We will also have a registration table at the race. Please be there half an hour early if you plan on registering the day of.

This year we did not order T-shirts as we thought the money would be better spent for the cause. However, feel free to wear last year's T-shirt if you still have it. The course will be the same: start at the Muni, up Broadway, west on the Luce Line, south on Ferndale, and then finish on Lake Street through downtown Wayzata. If you can't join us please consider a donation directly through the website. Otherwise, we hope to see your there!
