Are you ready for one of the area’s hottest winter races?  Skiff Medical Center and the Pink Ribbon Support Group will be hosting the second annual Jingle for a Cure 5K on Saturday, Dec. 8.  All money raised from the winter run/walk will support cancer services provided by the Skiff Cancer Clinic. 

This family-friendly event, sponsored by Dr. Tom Buroker and Dr. Dan Buroker and Iowa Ortho, will offer 5K and 1 mile routes, great for walkers, joggers and runners.  Cost to participate is $25 if you pre-register by Nov. 26 and includes a commemorative long-sleeve t-shirt.  Registration after Nov. 26 and day of the race will be $30, including the race gift (please note, however, that t-shirts will be available in limited quantities).  In addition, all participants will receive jingle bells. 

Registration and packet pick-up will begin at 8 a.m. in the Skiff Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation department, located on the lower level of the Ross Medical Arts Building at 300 N. 4th Ave. E., with the races beginning at 9 a.m.  The course will start and end outside the northeast entrance of the hospital.  Prizes will be awarded to overall and age group winners in both the 5K and one-mile runs. 

“The Skiff Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation team is excited to again partner with the Pink Ribbon Support Group to host the Jingle for a Cure,” said Robyn Friedman, Skiff physical therapist and event coordinator.  “There is a course for everyone – runners, walkers, joggers.  We invite you to join us at this fun event and support the Skiff Cancer Clinic at the same time.”

Registration forms are available at the hospital and online at http://getmeregistered.com/JingleforaCure.  To learn more, contact Robyn Friedman at rfriedman@skiffmed.com or (641) 791-4380.
