Registration for all events is available online (http://wipeout-cancer.org/sports-day/). All participants will receive lunch and a Wipeout Cancer t-shirt. Net proceeds raised from this year’s 2013 Sports Day for Charity will benefit the LiveSTRONG Foundation and the Cancer CAREPoint program.
“Many of our friends and family members have been personally impacted by cancer. It makes it even more meaningful as we come together on this special day. Through Sports Day for Charity, we hope to start an initiative that is fun while helping to raise funds and awareness for cancer,” said Caroline “Liner” Lee, a cancer survivor and Founder of Wipeout Cancer. “We are very pleased with registration for Sports Day thus far and expect to have a great turnout.
