Santa Anita: "Get on Track to Beat Cancer"

Tomorrow's the day!

"Racing fans, here’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to do something good AND something memorable. City of Hope and Santa Anita Park invite you to get ON TRACK TO BEAT CANCER and support the Women’s Cancers, Women’s Cures program. Join jockeys, trainers and celebrities on track. And, when we say ON TRACK, we mean on track.

Here’s how it works. Following the last race on closing day, Sunday, April 17th, you, your family and your friends can take a quarter mile walk down the Santa Anita stretch and exit through the winner’s circle; the same stretch and winner’s circle that hosted Zenyatta, John Henry, Seabiscuit and every champion in between. Raise your banners, bring your cameras, shoot video, get autographs, run like a racehorse, shout out loud and proudly honor those who are battling cancer and those who have succumbed. We’ve all been touched by cancer. Make this a walk in memory of the ones you love and those who love thoroughbred racing."

HANA's California Representative Roger has assembled a few members to take the walk tomorrow. "We'll be wearing purple and HANA sashes", he informs us.

If you are nearby, won't you join them? For $10, it's for a very good cause, that in one way or another has touched us all.
