- 61for61Home Run/Walk to support cancer research at MeritCare Roger Maris Cancer Center
MeritCare is now taking registrations for the 15th annual 61for61 Home Run/Walk event that will be held Saturday, Sept. 27, at 9 a.m. This year's event features a new, certified course that begins and ends at MeritCare Southpointe, 2400 32nd Ave. S., Fargo. Home Run/Walk participants can sign up for a 10K, a two-mile competitive run or a two-mile fun walk. Advance registration is $25 and participants are encouraged to raise pledges with 100 percent of the money raised supporting research at MeritCare Roger Maris Cancer Center. Prizes will be awarded to race winners (by age division) and to those who have earned the most pledges.
New this year, participant/teams can create their own fundraising Web page by logging on to 61for61.meritcare.com. This gives participants another opportunity to get involved in the event by showing their enthusiasm, expressing why they feel passionately about raising money to fight cancer, and allowing them to easily accept pledges on-line. The more pledges participants raise, the more chances they have to win Scheels' gift cards.
