Purple Pinkie 5K Run/Walk

The Yvette M. Palmer Purple Pinkie 5K Run/Walk will be on Sunday, April 22, 2012 at DeSales University. Registration begins at 9am, race starts at 10am. All proceeds from this event will go to PolioPlus to help eradicate Polio world wide. This event is sponsored by the DeSales University Rotaract Club and Rotary District 7430. At our first race last year, we rose $5,000 for PolioPlus and we hope to top that this year!

We renamed the race in honor of friend, Rotarian and last year's co-chair/founder of the 5K, Yvette M. Palmer, who lost her battle to lymphoma a few weeks ago. If it wasn't for her passion, drive, leadership, vision and energy, last year's Purple Pinkie 5K would not have been a success.

Below is the online registration link. We hope you're all able to participate and support the cause!  I also ask if you please forward this information along to your friends, family, colleagues, students, Greek Life chapters, student clubs, Rotarians, fellow runners/walkers etc., who may be interested in participating, that would be greatly appreciated! (We had 100+ participants last year!)
