FREE t-shirts are guaranteed for all pre-registrants prior to April 23....extended to midnight on April 23!

Bethany Beach Charities, Inc. is raising money to help those fighting breast cancer and promoting a local support system for the community, family and friends.

This year's theme is: NEW YORK, NEW YORK: Take a bite out of cancer!  So dress in your favorite New York costume or style...dress as a Yankee or Met, Giant or Jet, Ranger or Knick...or as the Statue of Liberty, a member of the NYPD or NYFD, a cabbie or a Rockette...Frank Sinatra, a hot dog or piece of pizza.

Dress as your favorite New Yorker or New York character and walk or run to the finish line on May 11th!

This year’s race is being dedicated to Liz Burke, a native New Yorker. Liz was one of the founding members of the race and long-time Bethany Beach resident who fought the valiant fight long and hard and died this past year.

This is an untimed event! We are a low key, low tech, grass roots organization with no frills - we are about the cause and not the swag - but we are also about the fun! Everyone has his/her own style! Dress in your favorite costume – mask, cape, tights, torches  - or whatever gives you that NEW YORK state of mind and help raise money for breast cancer research and support!! There will be prizes for the "most spirited attire” for Male, Female, Team, Youth, Stroller, Wheelchair and Doggie participants!

Once again we will be raising money for Beebe Healthcare/Tunnel Cancer Center to support research or to help those who are battling breast cancer and are overwhelmed with the costs of tests or drugs.
