Walking for Cancer Prevention with TeamAICR

Physical activity is a major part of AICR’s message for cancer prevention: Being physically active reduces risk for colorectal, post-menopausal breast and endometrial cancer.

But we don’t just talk the talk. Every year our staff laces up their shoes and puts on a TeamAICR jersey for the St. Patrick’s Day 8k in downtown Washington, D.C.

We may not be the fastest group, or even the most coordinated, but when you put our staff in matching shirts and throw us in to a themed race we’re more than a little enthusiastic.

Runners and walkers of all different levels met up early Sunday morning. We had a great turnout, including first-time racers, former cross-country champs and some very chilly cheerers who braved the cold to root us on.

DanHeather2013This diverse group has one thing in common — a passionate support for cancer prevention research and awareness. This year we raised nearly $1,000 for cancer research!

So if you’re ready for the challenge, or just want to look this stylish:

Happy running!

    This was my first race – and it was awesome! What a great, supportive team to run with and be cheered by. I did a walk/run combination and reached my daily goal of 10,000 steps before lunchtime!
