Saturday 10.5.2013 @ 8:00am | ImagesAZ | Community


It’s time to stretch, prepare and get ready for the 12th Annual Linda’s WISH 5K Run & Walk, Oct. 5 at 8 a.m.


Last year over 600 runners and walkers participated in the 5K Run/Walk and raised over $7,000. This year the goal is even higher, the event even bigger and more surprises are being planned. “We couldn’t be more pleased with continued commitment of Ironwood at Anthem Country Club, the surrounding communities and folks young and old, who continue to embrace this event and to help raise funds and find a cure for breast cancer!” said Dy Mogan, event coordinator and member of Team WISH Arizona.


Register before Sept. 16 for event cost of $20. Participants will receive an outstanding event t-shirt sponsored by the Seattle Swiners, Flat Tire Defender and Custom Image. Registration on the day of the event is $20 for adults, $10 for children 11 to 18 years old; children under 10 are free, but will not receive a t-shirt.


Carol Stacy of Team WISH Arizona said, “The month of October kicks off Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Our focus is to grow and expand this event so we can make a difference and help fund those in need of treatment and medicines to live a normal and happy life. We couldn’t do it without the support of our friends at Anthem Country Club.”


She added, “With the help of the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts, the Spirit Team from Boulder Creek High School, members of Team WISH Arizona, the staff at Anthem Country Club and tons of volunteers, it will be a fun-filled day with music, family, friends and more!”


The event is named after co-founder of Team WISH Arizona, Linda Kacmarsky, who passed away in December 2010 but left a legacy to carry on and help find a cure for breast cancer.
