Gainesville, VA, September 24, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- The Virginia Division of Lennar and residents of their active adult community, Heritage Hunt in Gainesville are gearing up for their eighth annual 5K Walk/Run fundraiser to help in the fight against cancer.
The event is open to the public and will take place at the clubhouse of Lennar’s Heritage Hunt Gainesville community on Saturday, September 26 at 8:30 a.m. The walk/run continues for 3.1 miles throughout the Heritage Hunt community. Participation is $20 with all proceeds benefiting the American Cancer Society, the Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center of Georgetown University and the Cancer Center at Lake Manassas.
The first 150 registrants receive a commemorative T-shirt and prizes will be awarded to the top three men and women walkers and runners.
“Each year our walk/run has gotten bigger and better,” said Michael George, project manager for Lennar’s Virginia Division. “It is truly inspiring to see so many people join together in the fight against cancer. Cancer is a devastating disease and our goal at Lennar is to continue raising money and awareness so that one day, with everyone’s efforts, there will be a cure.”
Lennar was recently presented with the American Cancer Society’s prestigious Grand Visionary Award for their efforts in raising $775,000 for cancer awareness over the course of nine years.
In addition to the walk/run, other Lennar fundraisers for the American Cancer Society, the Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center of Georgetown University and the Cancer Center at Lake Manassas include the Lennar Heritage Charity Golf Classic, Casino Night and Silent Auction.
