Warren, VT (September 19, 2014) – The Sugarbush Health and Racquet Club (SHaRC is hosting a Rally for the Cure Tennis event on Saturday, October 4th. Rally for the Cure is a grass roots program that works through volunteer organized golf, tennis and social events to educate women about breast cancer and remind them to get their annual screening.
The SHaRC invites the public to take part. The day’s activities will include the following:
9:00 AM: Registration & Vendor Fair
10:00 AM: Round Robin
12:40-1:45 PM: Lunch
2:00-5:00 PM: Open Court Time
Prizes will be awarded to the winner of the event and each participant will receive lunch, a goody bag with important breast health information and other Rally items, as well as a subscription to a select Condé Nast magazine such as SELF, Golf Digest, Bon Appétit or Architectural Digest.
“We are proud to open our facility and host a Rally for the Cure event,” states Jill Wilkinson, SHARC Manager. “The event is a fun way for us to bring together our members and the community to support an important cause while playing a sport they are passionate about.”
Since its start in 1996, the Rally program has touched over 2.5 million people with the important message that early detection and effective treatment saves lives. In addition to mobilizing people behind breast cancer awareness, Rally events have generated over $75 million for Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
”The success of Rally is attributed to volunteer ambassadors like the SHaRC and New England Tennis Holidays, who have said ‘Yes, we can have a Rally at our club’. It is their enthusiasm, energy and support we value in our commitment to support Susan G. Komen,” says Diane Perillo, Program Manager for Rally for the Cure.
Rally for the Cure is run by Condé Nast and is based in Wilton, Connecticut. For further information about the SHARC Rally event, contact the club at 802.583.6700. To host a Rally event of your own, call 1.800.327.6811 or visit the website: www.rallyforthecure.com.
