Published on April 01, 2019
The votes are in and this year’s Especially for You® Race Against Breast Cancer T-shirt color has been determined by the outcome of an online public poll. And the winner is … MAROON!
Beginning March 14, those interested in helping to determine the shirt color could click on a link on the EFY website, as well as EFY and Mercy social media pages to cast their vote. The three color choices were maroon, yellow and Carolina blue. Voting ended March 31.
Race organizers hope to see more than 15,000 participants wearing the T-shirts on race day, which is Sunday, Oct. 6.
Race registration opens April 15 at www.especiallyforyourace.org. Team registration is available through Sept. 9. Individuals may register up until 7:30 a.m. on race day. Reduced pricing is offered for those who register early.
The race proceeds provide financial assistance for breast-care and gynecological cancer services to local individuals in need. The EFY Fund now covers breast, ovarian, uterine, cervical, vulvar and vaginal cancer services at participating local medical providers.
Co-founders of the race are Mercy Medical Center and General Mills. Those who register for the race receive an EFY T-shirt and a General Mills goodie bag.
