After an inter-office press release, I learned about the Race for the Cure (and my company’s involvement in the Tokyo-based event). During training, I learned about the heavy involvement our company has with The Breast Cancer Research Fund, and I am impressed by the support given to the cause by the employees. Cancer has touched the lives of many people in my life, and last spring, I ran my first charity race courtesy of Revlon’s Run/Walk 5K in NYC.
I am going to contact the corporate running team and see how I can get involved in this event. The only obstacles I foresee is that it Thanksgiving weekend (and trying to get that off may be short of impossible), and borrowing a Japanese mailing address for my race registration/information.
