5K4Life Is Fast Approaching!

The Third Annual 5K4Life, benefiting Prize4Life, is almost upon us!

Our founder and CEO, Avi Kremer, will be in attendance for the race this year. Avi was diagnosed with ALS in 2006 and launched Prize4Life to rapidly accelerate the discovery of a cure for the disease.

When: November 6th
8:00 - 10:45 AM Race Registration and Race Packet Pick-Up
11:00 AM Race Start
Where: Kendall Square / 15 Cambridge Center

Members of Team Ashley helped make last year's 5K4Life a tremendous success...

ALS is a devastating neurodegenerative disease that afflicts more than 600,000 people around the world, robbing them of the ability to move, speak, and ultimately to breathe. Most patients will die within 2 to 5 years.

But you can be a part of the cure! Support Prize4Life's efforts to drive breakthroughs in research at the 5K4Life!

Here's how you can help:

1. Register today for the 5K at www.5k4life.org
2. Volunteer for the race by emailing events@prize4life.org
3. Donate to Prize4Life here
4. Fundraise for the 5K4Life to help bring us closer to a world free of ALS

Fundraising for Prize4Life is a way to honor someone you know living with ALS, to remember someone who has passed away from the disease, or to deliver hope to the thousands of ALS patients and their families battling it. Join Prize4Life's efforts, and the next ALS breakthrough could be yours...

Create your own fundraising page here.

Thank you for your support! Please share word of the 5K4Life with your friends and networks, and RSVP for the race on Facebook.
