Scope It Out 5K Run/Walk Returns to the Nation’s Capital for the 11th Year on Sunday March 20th

It’s that time of year, when I start my early and often asks for donations, small or big, medium or big, small or small, big or big, to go toward the Pamela’s Punch Team which is raising money for this year, the 11th annual Scope It Out DC 5K Run/Walk. The event will take place again on Freedom Plaza downtown at 9am on SUNDAY, March 20th. Yes, I know, it’s Palm Sunday (Easter comes early this year) and spring break commences for many an excited child/parent, but even if you cannot make the family & dog-friendly run/walk, I’d love for you to consider making a donation.

Your $25, $50, $75, $100 or $5,000 (hahaha!), ok, anything in between that, will collectively help us to get to our goal of $7,500.

So, from the bottom of my heart as Team Captain of Pamela’s Punch, I thank you for supporting the continuing efforts that Colon Cancer Alliance has accomplished in the fight against colorectal cancer.
