Albuquerque run to take aim at pancreatic cancer

May 2, 2018 by  

Pancreatic cancer is an illness that affects many people each year, and an Albuquerque fundraiser will see to give the public an opportunity to make a difference.

The race, which has been dubbed “Polly’s Run” will include five-kilometer and one-kilometer kids’ options. The runners will be both raising funds and awareness while honoring those who have been lost to this disease.

All of the profits from this activity will be donated to the UNM Comprehensive Cancer Center, and will be used to help fund research into a cure. A variety of options are available for those who wish to get involved, and these range from registration for those who have survived pancreatic cancer to family sponsorship and even a virtual run for anyone who would like to help but can’t do so in person.

Individuals who would like to participate can choose from a timed run, and there will also be a slower-paced option for those who would prefer to walk or roll along in an assistive device. Anyone who purchases a ticket for these choices will receive a technical drift T-shirt. A printer can perform logo design services to help craft items like these for a fundraising event.

Tiguex Park will be the location for Polly’s Run, and it will be held on June 3. More information can be found on its Facebook listing.
