We've dedicated the 2016-17 Winter Series to Greg Sousa and, as the final piece of that memorial, we're aiming to get a huge turnout of Godiva runners, volunteers, and donors for the April 29th Angels Among Us 5K which supports Duke's Robert Preston Tisch Brain Tumor Center
Several years ago, Greg formed Badousa Brain, a fundraising team that's still going strong and will participate in this month's race on the Duke Campus. Godiva will donate proceeds from the Greg Sousa Winter Series to Badousa Brain.
Also, we're making the Winter Series shirts available earlier than usual, so that Godivans can run, volunteer (or both!) in these special, Badousa Brain themed t's. If you've earned a GSWS 2016-17 t-shirt, or taken advantage of the opportunity to order one online, you can pick it up at the Godiva tent on the morning of the Angels race.
If you didn't earn series points to qualify for a shirt this season, we will allow a one-time only purchase of a GSWS/Badousa Brain t-shirt ($10 each) for the 2017 Angels Among Us 5K. Please considering ordering a shirt and joining the Badousa Brain fundraising team. T-shirts will be at cost and are not included in the Angels 5k entry fee.
If you would like to run in memory of Greg and support Badousa Brain, please do the following:
2. Click "Join an Existing Team"
3. Search for "Badousa Brain"
4. Sign up for the Badousa Brain team and complete your registration.
If you are unable to run the race but would like to support Badousa Brain's fundraising efforts, you can do so by going to the Badousa Brain site to make a donation.
For many years, Godiva has provided a large contingent of volunteers to help with packet pickup and race day registration, and we need that tradition to continue. You can wear your newly acquired GSWS shirt when you work the race. Contact Gordon Keeler firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer. And yes, it is possible to both volunteer on race day and compete in the 5k, too!
Shirts will be available for pick up on race day at a CGTC table to be located near the Angels Among Us registration table.
