The event is presented by the 2014 ACS Relay For Life of McKinney team Hope Bleeds Purple, in honor of the Relay For Life theme color, purple. Sherry Jeffcoat, 2013 ACS Relay For Life of McKinney co-chair and co-team captain for the Hope Bleeds Purple Relay For Life team said, “Fight Back 5K is a fund-raising event created by Alesha Crowell, Amy Feagin and myself as a way to show the community of McKinney what Relay For Life is. Are there ever too many events to participate in that could help stop cancer from ever hurting anyone we love again?,” Jeffcoat said.
In participating in Fight Back 5K, you are making a personal commitment to save lives by taking up the fight against cancer, Jeffcoat said. “By taking action, people are personally taking steps to save lives and fight back against a disease that takes too much. The 5K is fun, challenging and certified. It will be chip timed by Race Chip Timing. The net proceeds from Fight Back 5K will benefit the American Cancer Society. Register today and support someone you know and love who has or is experiencing this terrible disease.”
