Please join our team for the 2017 Get Your Rear in Gear event in Charlotte on March 4th! This team is dedicated to the memory of my mother, Mary Kay Sanford, and it's an honor to participate in another great GYRIG event. My family has participated in about ten events across three states in the past eight years and we are looking forward to another successful day in Charlotte.
This is my first year actively organizing a team and fundraising in Charlotte and I'm very excited about it. Run, walk, or become a virtual runner for Team Sanford and you'll receive some extra goodies from me. There will also be a couple fundraisers between now and March that will be a lot of fun for everybody, even if you don't want to join the team.
This disease is obviously very close to me and my family and the simple fact remains that early detection is the only proven method of prevention. The GYRIG series keeps locally raised money in that community. That is vital for a type of cancer that is the deadliest outside of lung cancer.
