Mark your calendars for Sunday, September 29th – Team EmBen is coming back in full force and looking for new members for this year’s Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation (BJALCF) “Your Next Step is the Cure” 5K event!! Last year the team raised $10K and 70+ friends and family descended on San Francisco with nothing less than 732.5% team spirit. The team is reuniting behind its namesake and inspirational leader, and looking to up its game this year.
Do you want in? Yes? Yes! Great answer. Here is the scoop:
“Your Next Step is the Cure” 5K Run/Walk
Sunday, September 29th, 11 AM

To raise money and awareness for lung cancer research and education, to share stories and support with other lung cancer patients, survivors, and their families and communities, and because it’s fun, just plain old fun.

Emily has been working hard on rebuilding her strength and lung capacity so she will be able to complete the entire 5K with the rest of the team. She is excited to visit with everyone from last year, and looking forward to seeing lots of new faces in the crowd as well. Won’t you come to Lake Merced on September 29th and help make her day? 🙂
In other awesome news, these have been popping up around San Francisco (!!!):
This advertising campaign was recently launched to help promote the 5K event as well as some of the other great initiatives that the BJALCF spearheads to support lung cancer patients and their families. Who better to be the inspirational face of a lung cancer survivor than dear Emily? Keep an eye out for her cute mug gracing bus stops around The Bay! If you spot one, take a photo with it and share the pic with the rest of Team EmBen using #EmBenKicksCancer!
