Are you up for a CHALLENGE? We've got two for you!

Julie Wyatt - Monday, August 28, 2017

Have you registered yet for the 2017 5K Run for the Future to Benefit the Radiation Oncology Institute? This year’s race promises to be bigger and better than ever! We are excited to run in beautiful San Diego (click here to see the course map). Join us bright and early at 6:44 a.m. on Monday, September 25th as physicians, residents, industry leaders and others run/walk to support our industry! In addition to our top male and female runner trophies, your organization could win one of our team challenges!

1. Academic Team Challenge - Academic institutions are invited to declare a team (made up of residents, faculty, alumni, or just fans!) to compete for $1,000 in scholarship money, a trophy, and bragging rights! The top three times from each team are averaged into a single “Top Team Time.” There is no charge to declare a team (other than the usual registration fee paid by each runner). Academic teams who are interested in competing this year just need to complete a quick formcontact us for more information!

2. Corporate Team Challenge - Your company can declare a team for no charge (other than the usual registration fee that each runner pays) to compete for the esteemed title and a trophy! To score, we take the top three times from each team and average them into a “Top Team Time.” Our sponsor companies (Varian, Elekta, Accuray, and Northwest Medical Physics Center) are automatically registered in this contest! If your company is not a sponsor, you can declare a team by completing a simple formcontact us for more information. Runners will need to identify themselves as being on the corporate team to qualify.

Keep Running Strong!
