Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer with SHPYP!

September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and the Society of Health Policy Young Professionals is showing our support by organizing a team to participate in St. Jude Children's Hospital's Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer. Please join us as we spend a beautiful morning outdoors and get some exercise in support of a great cause. Participants can choose to walk or run, and we encourage you to bring anyone (and everyone) who would like to attend! Those who are unavailable to attend but are interested in donating may do so through the link provided below.

WHO: All SHPYP members, friends, and colleagues
Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer

WHERE: Nationals Park - 1500 S Capitol St. SE (nearest metro: Navy Yard-Ballpark on the green line)

Participation in this event costs $10. Register or donate here.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please RSVP through BOTH the registration/donation link above AND this Eventbrite invitation to ensure that we have an accurate count of those attending.
