Philly fights Melanoma

The fourth annual "Running For Cover" 5K Run/1-Mile Walk brings the Philadelphia community together on the streets surrounding the WachoviaCenter on Sunday, June 28 (7:30 a.m. to 8:45 registration) to raise awareness of melanoma and generate funds to support the continuous fight against skin cancer.

Interested participants and donors can preregister at www.tinyurl.com/running4cover or call (215) 898-3930.

Proceeds from “Running For Cover” will benefit The Noreen O'Neill Foundation for Melanoma Research and The Wistar Institute. The event was a tremendous success in 2008 by raising over $40,000 from the local community and corporate partners and attracting over 1,000 participants.
