Guam - The Bank of Guam IFIT 5K Run/Walk is scheduled for this Saturday at the Bank of Guam Headquarters in Hagatna. Maria Cooper-Nurse, Race Coordinator, said, "So the race starts and ends at the Bank of Guam Headquarters in Hagatna. It's a nice flat course and we actually have quite a few of Guam's top runners joining us as well. It is a really nice fun family event. We do give out quick dry t-shirts for the first 1,500 finishers and we also give away recycle water bottles so that way we can take part in the green initiative. We really try to minimize as much trash and waste that the race generates. We have over 1,500 participants each year and we give away tons of prizes and we also have lots of refreshments. This year Delta was very generous in giving us our grand prize which is 2 round trip tickets to the U.S or 4 round trip tickets to Narita or Manila, it's the winner's choice. They also provided us with two $500.00 vouchers to any Delta destination."

If you haven't signed up for the run you can still do so by going to Hornet Sports, any Bank of Guam location, Guam Cancer Care in Tamuning, Java Hut Coffee Shop or online at www.ifit5k.eventbrite.com.

Karina Dolorin Quito said, "Guam Cancer Care was established almost 4 years ago and we are so humbled by the support we have received from our local community. Bank of Guam being one of them, we are so thankful they believe in our mission and they support our cause and named us the beneficiary of this race for the fourth year in a row. The proceeds for this event go towards supporting the programs that we have at Guam Cancer Care for both our local cancer patients and for our screening and outreach programs as well."
