Obviously, you know the importance of the Runyon 5K run on August 12th at Yankee Stadium right? We wrote about it in WHY THE RUNYON 5K RUN IS BACK AT YANKEE STADIUM. This important event raises money for cancer research and it really is a great cause.

Well, in addition to reminding you to sign up, you need to know that the official starters have been announced for the event.  Last year it was the great Roy White.  This year it's Mickey Rivers and Ron Blomberg, 2 great Yankees who are coming out for a terrific day.

As the release goes: "The only charitable run/walk that uses the legendary ballpark as its course, the fourth annual Runyon 5K at Yankee Stadiumwill take place on Sunday, August 12, 2012. Participants will run or walk the concourses, climb stairs between levels and appear on the video board as they take their own victory laps on the warning track that circles the field. Since its inception in 2009, the run has raised more than $1.4 million to support groundbreaking cancer research by the nation's most innovative young scientists, funded by the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation."

A Reminder: "Registration is still open at for a fee of $40 and a minimum fundraising requirement of $60. After July 12 the registration fee increases to $50. Family members and supporters can view the event from the Delta SKY360° Suite overlooking home plate."

Hope to see you there!
