The 8th Annual ROI 5K is officially in the books! Surrounded by ocean and set against the scenic backdrop of San Diego's beautiful harbor, runners were anxious to start the race on a perfect California morning. More than 300 runners, including 25 teams, ran to raise money and awareness for the Radiation Oncology Institute (ROI), a non-profit organization that supports the research and education of radiation therapy in improving cancer treatments.
This year we had a record number of participants, including new and returning runners to participate in a little friendly competition. We’d like to recognize and congratulate this year's winners who are as follows:
Winning Male: Benjamin Li, 16:07.95
Winning Female: Lindsay Burt, 21:22.17
Winning Corporate Team: Varian & Siemens
Winning Academic Team: Emory
We’re also very pleased to report the total donation this year – including sponsorships, registrations, and in-kind donations – was $58,159.62! We’re tremendously grateful to all of our amazing sponsors and volunteers. We had a great time running strong with everyone in San Diego and can't wait to do it again next year in San Antonio, TX!
