The annual Julie Richardson Proctor 5K Ribbon Run Color Rush is quickly approaching and once again, students and community members are faced with the opportunity to form a team and save lives.

This year, the three chairs of the run are Jessica Brown, Sherry Paschal, and Christy Simon. Paschal, a survivor of cancer, has been very open about how happy she is to be helping this event come about.

“Throughout all the hardships, I never lost my hope or inspiration because of my family and the amazing efforts of the Gift of Life,” Pascal said. “I am so thankful to be involved with this phenomenal organization and look forward to making this the most incredible Ribbon Run ever!”

For those who are unfamiliar with the run, it is a way to get involved with the fight against cancer. Proceeds from this event help the Gift of Life save lives in our community. The money collected from the run helps provide nearly 2,300 free cancer screenings and over 100 lifesaving educational outreach events in the area. The support of everyone involved helps make a difference to women and men in Southeast Texas.

Luckily, there is still time to sign up and participate. Registration and packet pick up is occurring from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 29 through Friday, Oct. 2 at the Beaumont Civic Center Lobby. Lace up your tennis shoes and get ready to run, and also make sure to bring a towel to save your car seats from all of the color dye powder.
