The 1in8K Run for Moore exists to provide support for members of our community who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. We help patients with transportation to and from treatments, wigs, medications and other supplies needed during the course of treatment.
We also work to ensure that uninsured and underinsured Moore County residents have access to mammography screenings at little or no cost at the Moore Free & Charitable Clinic.
We seek do to this through a community-centered event that will: raise funds to fight breast cancer, increase public awareness and allow individuals to honor and support those who battle breast cancer.
Visit Run Signup's website for more information or download this registration form and mail to The Foundation of FirstHealth. T-shirts will be available for pickup at FirstHealth Fitness Pinehurst (170 Memorial Drive) on Thursday, Oct. 8 and Friday, Oct. 9 from 2 to 8 p.m.
WHY AN 8K
We chose the distance as a tribute to the many women who have or will develop breast cancer. Sadly, 1 in 8 women will develop invasive breast cancer at some point in their lives. That is too many. By supporting 1in8K Run for Moore, you can help change the statistics and change lives in the process.
