2011 Komen Atlanta Race for the Cure

[guest post by Ed]

Some of our amazing friends we have put together a team called “Gaile Force” to participate in the Race For the Cure 2011 at Atlantic Station on May 7th in honor of Meredith. The Race For the Cure 2011 is 1k walk and 5k run/walk to help Komen Atlanta enable women to detect and survive breast cancer. Check out the Race for the Cure tab at http://www.komenatlanta.org/  to learn more.  We also encourage you to sign up and join our team to participate in either the 1k walk or 5k run/walk.

To help out, click here to go to Meredith’s page.  You will have the option to do one of the following:

1. Join Meredith’s team and participate in the 5k run/walk.
2. Support Meredith by making a donation for a cure.

To join the team, click on the “Join Meredith’s Team!” button.  This will take you to the form and guide you to registering for Team Gaile Force.  Please note if you register by April 15th, the cost is $30.  After April 15th the cost goes up to $35.

If you are unable to participate and would like to make a donation, click on the “Support Meredith!” button.  This will take you to a page to make a donation in any amount.

Separately, you may also purchase a T-Shirt that we will all be wearing in honor of Meredith. The Cost is $35 If you would like a T shirt, please email Gregg Ernst at gernst@mindspring.com and let him know what size you would like.  Below is the front and back of the shirt:











Following the walk/run at 11:00 am we will be having a celebration at Meehan’s Vinings with appetizers and drinks.  Even if you can’t make the race please join us at Meehan’s.
