|The Hope Clinic of the Emory Vaccine Center will host its first annual Hope Springs Eternal 5K Fun Run/Walk on Saturday, April 3, 2004. The race will begin at 9:00 a.m. in the Main Pavilion in Decatur Square (registration from 8-8:45 a.m.). Don't worry if you do not want to run. You can walk (dogs and strollers are OK), cheer others on, or volunteer to help on race day! This event will kick off the Hope Clinic's exciting lineup of community activities this spring and summer.
Funds raised from this event will enable the Hope Clinic to continue supporting outreach and education efforts to communities in Atlanta to increase knowledge about HIV prevention clinical trials and also increase participation. In addition, we will be able to share our skills and experience with collaborators in resource-poor countries so they can conduct HIV vaccine trials in their own countries.
Not convinced yet? All participants will receive a very cool, multicolor, 100% cotton t-shirt, bagels, fresh fruit, and water! We will also provide trophies to the overall male and female, masters male and female, plus three-deep in five-year age groups from 19 and under to 65 and over. All participants will be automatically entered in a special drawing for several prizes to be given away at the conclusion of the event. What a deal!
To register by mail send a $20 check (made payable to Emory University Fund for Hope) to The Hope Clinic, 603 Church Street, Decatur, Georgia, 30030, with a registration form (attached to this email).
