Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer

Calling all SHPYPers! 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! 

WHO: All SHPYP members, friends, and colleagues
Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer
Saturday, September 29 at 9:30am (registration begins at 8:00am; our group will gather at a designated meeting point around 8:30am)
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 AND this Eventbrite invitation to ensure that we have an accurate count of those attending.

We hope to see you there!
