Dear Friends,

2003 Komen National Race for the Cure
JOIN OUR TEAM! & Save the Date June 7th, 2003!

For the past 6 years, theMalawi Washington Association has formed a team, to join and support the Komen National Race for the Cure. This is a 5K Walk/Run, that takes place annually in Washington DC. In 2002, over 65,000 supporters and survivors participated in the Race ~ among those, the MWA team consisted of over 40 people! Donations to the Race go to support Breast Cancer research in the Washington Metro Area, as well as distributed support to other areas in the US for the same.

Again, you are encouraged to particiapte in the Race, and join the MWA team. Participation is voluntary; but it is also an opportunity for Malawians to stand up and be counted in support of local fund raisers. Registration for the race is $25.00 before May 15th (mail in registration), and $30 until June 5th, 2002. When you register, you will be sent a Race T-shirt, and information on the Race. This years event is on Saturday, June 7th, 2003.

Joining the MWA team is easy. Simply complete a registration form (which can be picked up at many local businesses, including Safeway, Giant, Hechts' Fresh Fields..) - be sure to specify the team name as MWA - this will ensure the MWA team gets credit for your registration! Once you have registered, please inform the MWA Race for The Cure Captain (contact details below), so your registration can be verified on the Race WebSite.

Our Goal is a Cure……

Donations are welcome from those who will be unable to walk/run with the team, although we hope you can be there! For more information, please logon to the official Race website at www.nationalraceforthecure.org . Or better yet, if you would like to receive  a form please contact the MWA Race for the Cure Team Captain (contact details below). If you would like to register online, visit Race Online Registration, select Join a Team then select MWA - Malawi-Washington Association.
Looking forward to you joining the MWA team, as we Race for the Cure!...
