Fleet Feet Sports Montclair recognizes October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We invite you to join our efforts in raising awareness and take steps to help our fellow runners, mothers, sisters, aunts, daughters, friends, co-workers, grandmothers, neighbors and the 295,240 newly diagnosed patients this year.
We are hosting a long supported training run of 5, 10, 15 and 20 miles. There will be aid stations every 2.5 miles stocked with PowerBar gels and Perform drink and water.
Cost: $10 Donation to benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF)

We have chosen BCRF because their mission is to prevent and cure breast cancer by advancing the worlds' most promising research. Ninty One cents of every dollar raised is committed to tackling breast cancer. This means more answers, faster breakthroughs and treatment personalized for every patient. With more than half a billion dollars raised to date, that's progress.
