The Tigerlily Foundation is pleased to announce the 2nd Annual Pink Boa 5k Run/Walk, on September 15, 2013, at 8:00 a.m. at  Fairfax Corner. The race will start at the Fairfax Corner Pavilion, 11945 Grand Commons Avenue, Fairfax, Virginia. Registration is open, and participants can sign up as individuals or create teams.

This first event will bring together more than 1000 participants from around the Washington, DC Metropolitan area to raise funds to support young women 15 – 40, before, during and after breast cancer.  Tigerlily Foundation’s programs provide education, buddies, buddy bags, meals, financial assistance and support to young women.  Tigerlily’s Pink Boa 5K Run/Walkwill be hosted by Lesli Foster, Anchor WUSA9.  Visit our Pink Boa 5K website to register as a participant, join a team, sponsor, donor, fundraise, volunteer or help us spread the word.    We'll have giveaways, music, fun activities, and lots of friends from around the beltway and there will be lots of fun to be had!   Sponsorships and vendor opportunities available.

Last year's event was a blast.  We featured a variety of vendors, entertainment, music, yoga, zumba dancing, and was attended by Sarah Fraser and Ms. District of Columbia 2012, Allyn Rose.  We hope you'll join us and impact the lives of young women and provide them with services they need throughout their breast cancer journey and beyond. To get more information, visit us on our Pink Boa 5K website today!  If you have any questions, email pinkboa5k@tigerlilyfoundation.org.  To date, Tigerlily Foundation has raised more than $500,000 to provide young women living with breast cancer with programmatic support.

About Tigerlily Foundation

Tigerlily Foundation is one of the only organizations in the nation providing full lifecycle, service-oriented assistance to young women (15-40) before, during and after breast cancer.  The Tigerlily Foundation focuses solely on women between the ages of 15 and 40 and works to empower young women to be their own best advocates for their health.  11,000 young women are diagnosed with breast cancer annually, and 1,100 die of the disease.  Even though they get breast cancer less often than older women, younger women tend to have more aggressive breast cancers, so education about the risk factors and early detection is key.  Tigerlily Foundation exists to decrease this disparity, and with our motto of "Beauty, Strength and Transformation", we aim to change lives. We hope you support our mission.  Visit www.tigerlilyfoundation.org <http://www.tigerlilyfoundation.org>  to learn more about our 1st Annual Pink Boa 5k Run/Walk.
