2013 Wannabe Cancer Free 5K
What: 2nd Annual 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run that raises awareness of Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma, a rare cancer that can exist in many different body sites. It most often occurs in the areas of the head and neck, in particular the salivary glands; but has also been reported in the breast, lacrimal gland of the eye, lung, brain, bartholin gland, trachea, and the paranasal sinuses. This malignancy has a slow – and sometimes relentless – progression with a tendency to grow along nerves. Particularly high rates of recurrence and metastasis to the lungs lead to a poor prognosis beyond ten years.
All net proceeds from this race will go to the Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma Research Foundation.
