If you are already “in shape” please still run in this event, you just ain’t eligible for the beat down challenge. The first 20 male non-runners to sign up will compete. (to register just email joel.fleischman@furnishanddesign.com say you are “in” by April 1st and state your t-shirt size.) And don’t forget to register officially for the race at www.teamhailey.org.

We will plan on wearing these for the race, so we know our competition, also because it will look cheesy, and to raise awareness of this disease. Also CBS and its other stores will pay for the first drink at the bar “of choice” after the race for all contestants. Side bets among the 20 ‘BEAT DOWN THE PLGA TEAM” is highly encouraged! Please pass on to all MALE non-runners that want to have fun and support a great charity! For more information visit www.teamhailey.org.
