Attention women runners

Here's a chance to get a workout while raising vital funds for U.Va.'s Cancer Center. On Sept. 4 at 8 a.m., women from the University and Charlottesville community will compete in the 17th annual Charlottesville Women's 4-Miler.

To participate in the 4-Miler, runners must register and pay the race fee of $15 by Aug. 26. Race forms are available at Ragged Mountain Running Shop on Elliewood Avenue, or from the web site at http://www.med.virginia.edu/medcntr/cancer/womens4miler/home.html. The run begins at the Foxfield Race Track on Garth Road, and participants must be there between 6:30 a.m. and 7:30 a.m.

Proceeds from the run, hosted by the Charlottesville Track Club, will benefit the Cancer Center's Breast Resource Center. The center provides education and services related to breast cancer and breast disease to patients, family members, health professionals and the community. In previous years, the 4-Miler has funded an exercise program and video for women with cancer and the printing of a self-help book for breast cancer patients.

For details, call Connie Friend at 971-6573. For further information on supporting the Cancer Center, contact Carol Wise at 924-8432 or cpw3m@virginia.edu.
