Ribbon Run & Walk to Fight Breast Cancer

Looking for a way to get involved with your community while giving back to a great cause this spring? Sign up to participate in the 5th annual Brambleton Ribbon Run/Walk. The event is scheduled for April, 14, 2012. All of the proceeds from the race will be donated to The Step Sisters, a local, non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds to help fight breast cancer.

This event is designed to attract runners and walkers alike. Regardless of age or physical fitness levels, everyone is welcome to partake and collectively support the united effort to fight breast cancer. Brambleton is expecting over 1,000 participants again this year. The event will begin in the morning with the 10K race, followed by a 5K “Fun Run” for any children participants. Live entertainment, a sponsors showcase and exciting finish line will entertain both runners and spectators.  There are also plenty of volunteer opportunities! Complete event details, including volunteer opportunities and registration are available at www.brambletonribbonrun.com. Plenty of parking will be available in the parking garages at the Brambleton Town Center.

The Step Sisters are a team of women and men in Loudoun County’s Brambleton community and beyond that joined together five years ago. Their main goal has been to take on the challenge of fighting breast cancer.  The organization is made up of breast cancer survivors, as well as mothers, sisters, daughters, brothers, sons and fathers who have all been touched by the horrible disease in one way or another.  The Step Sisters team has been among the top 10 fundraising teams in the region for the past five years. In fact, they’ve raised more than $500,000 for this amazing cause.  For more information or to make a donation, please visit www.stepsisters.org.

After the run, the Brambleton Town Center is a great place to stay and hang out with fellow Ribbon runners and walkers.  Grab lunch at one of the many restaurants, catch a movie, or do a little shopping to celebrate--you are within walking distance of everything you need.
