Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas is gearing up for the 12th Annual Season 4 a Cure Cancer Run on Sunday, October 2, 2011 at the Summerlin campus of Nevada Cancer Institute (NVCI). Presented in conjunction with the Las Vegas Running Company, major sponsors include KSNV-TV Ch. 3, MIX 94.1 FM and the Las Vegas Review-Journal. All proceeds will benefit NVCI.
This family-friendly event will include a 5K Run & Fun Walk as well as a 100-yard children’s dash, various children’s activities and a breakfast buffet featuring tantalising items prepared by Four Seasons chefs. Participants can also enter to win exciting raffle prizes, including dinners, tickets to Las Vegas shows and more. To date, this community event has raised USD 613,000.00 benefiting cancer research in the Las Vegas Valley, having raised more than USD 70,000.00 last year alone.
“We are honoured that the Season 4 a Cure event continues to contribute substantially to cancer research efforts here in the Las Vegas Valley,” says Mark Hellrung, Four Seasons general manager. “The event continues to get bigger and better. Last year marked our most successful run yet and we look forward to outdoing ourselves again this year.”
NVCI is the state-of-the-art research center in Las Vegas dedicated to the prevention, detection and treatment of cancer. The non-profit institute is committed to advancing the frontiers of knowledge of cancer through research and providing world-class, research-linked cancer care.
“This annual run has become a great community tradition, and an important venue for raising both financial support and awareness of Nevada Cancer Institute,” says Phillip J. Manno, NVCI interim director. “We can’t thank Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas and its partners enough for being such strong advocates for NVCI and the patients we work with every day. Their generosity goes a long way to support clinical care, education and research to reduce the burden of cancer for all Nevadans.”
The run will kick off at NVCI, One Breakthrough Way, near Town Center Drive and I-215. Registration begins at 7:00 am and the run will begin at 9:00 am. Advanced registration fees are USD 25.00 for adults, USD 10.00 for children ages 12 and under and USD 20.00 for seniors 55 and older, plus USD 3.00 for an Xtreme Timing Chip. All participants will receive a commemorative t-shirt. Non-runners can purchase tickets at the event for breakfast and activities only for USD 15.00 for adults and USD 10.00 for children.
