Back in it’s 42nd year, the Mercer Island Half Marathon is shaping up to be bigger and better then ever! Once again, the event will kick off the Northwest running season by offering the Swedish Medical Center Half Marathon Run/Walk, BMW Seattle 10K Run, Get Your Rear in Gear 5K Run/Walk, and Half-Mile Kids’ Dash!
All proceeds from the Mercer Island Half benefit colon cancer prevention and other Rotary causes. The run is one of the few events in the area devoted to this important cause and proud to support Get Your Rear in Gear, the National Colon Cancer Coalition and the Washington Colon Cancer S.T.A.R.S. organization. With the support of event sponsors and participants, the event is able to fund an awareness & prevention campaign explaining that the disease is 100% curable with early detection. If you’d rather not run or walk, you can still help by volunteering or making a donation in support of Colon Cancer Prevention.
Join in the action and the fun, and register! You’ll be supporting a great cause, and you’re sure to have a great time!
