There are just three days left to register for early bird rates for the inaugural Grapes of Wrath Extreme Romp’n’Stomp at Hillier Creek Estates on September 13, 2014. Those who register before midnight on Saturday, May 31, 2014 are eligible to save up to 25 per cent on their entry into the race.

Registration has been strong heading toward Saturday’s early bird cut off. To-date, there have been 26 teams and over 120 participants register with more coming in by the hour. “We are absolutely thrilled with the number of teams and individuals registered so far. Many of whom have started collecting pledges for much needed medical equipment for patients using our hospitals and for patients receiving cancer treatment,” said Wendy Warner, executive director of the Trenton Memorial Hospital Foundation.

The Canadian Cancer Society –HPE and Brighton Community Office, in a partnership with the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation and the Trenton Memorial Hospital Foundation are proud to present the inaugural Grapes of Wrath, a harrowing five kilometre run complete with daunting obstacles sure to test your ability to have fun in the face of adversity.

“We are ecstatic to have almost 30 teams committed with new registrations coming in daily at the discounted rate. We encourage everyone to register, whether racing competitively, recreationally or as part of a team. All money raised will support those living with cancer in our communities,” said Amy Doyle, manager of the Canadian Cancer Society’s Hastings-Prince Edward – Brighton office.

An early bird registration fee has been set at $75.00 per participant, valid until Saturday. After that, registration will increase to $100.00, per participant. The race is open to individuals or teams of two to 20.

Competitors must be 18 years or older on race day (September 13, 2014) to be eligible to run. Racers will receive a dry-fit t-shirt and upon completion of the race, dog tags.

For 75 years, the Canadian Cancer Society has been with Canadians in the fight for life. We have been relentless in our commitment to prevent cancer, fund research and support Canadians touched by cancer. From this foundation, we will work with Canadians to change cancer forever so fewer Canadians are diagnosed with the disease and more survive.
The PECMH and TMH Foundations support their respective hospitals by raising funds and awareness of the need to assist in the provision of priority medical equipment and services for all patients and residents of our communities. It is through the generosity of our donors that our doctors, nurses and technologists can provide quality health care to the patients at PECM and TM Hospital.
