5th Annual Tanger Fit for a Cure 5k already has record participation

TILTON — The Fifth Annual Tanger Fit for a Cure 5K Run/Walk presented by AutoServ will be held Sunday, September 22 starting at 8:30 a.m. at Tanger Outlets.

A record 750 participants have already registered for the 5K and registrations are anticipated Sunday. Proceeds from this event will again be kept local -- benefitting breast cancer awareness initiatives/women's imaging technology at LRGHealthcare.

Registration will take place from 7-8 a.m. Prior to the 8 a.m. start there will be a brief speaking ceremony featuring Tanger General Manager Eric Proulx; LRGHealthcare President & CEO Tom Clairmont; LRGHealthcare SVP of Administrative & Facilities Services Suzanne Stiles; and special guest speaker Pamela Ryan -- a 44-year old local resident who is undergoing treatment at LRGH (a Dana Farber-affiliated clinical trial) for recently diagnosed breast cancer.

The 5K will go off promptly at 8:30. The event will also offer educational booths, vendors, and a large pink ribbon for survivors and participants to sign.
