BLP "Sling Shots" Sprint for Life on May 7th

Sprint For Life

On Saturday, May 7, 2011, the Bishop Lifting Products “Sling Shots” participated in the 14th annual Sprint for Life 5K Run/Walk and Sprint for Sprouts Kids’ Run benefitting MD Anderson Cancer Center. 

Hosted by the Department of Gynecologic Oncology and Reproductive Medicine since 1998, Sprint for Life has raised over $2.7 million for the Blanton-Davis Ovarian Cancer Research Program at MD Anderson.  Bishop Lifting Products’ employees have been participating in the Sprint for Life for five years and are a proud Silver Sponsor for this year’s race.

On Race Day, survivors, their families and friends, businesses, and MD Anderson Employees came together to achieve 2 goals:

This year, about 22,000 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer and about 15,000 women will die, making ovarian cancer the leading cause of death from gynecologic cancers. Unfortunately, because there is no screening or early detection test available and the symptoms are subtle, only 25% of ovarian tumors are detected before they have progressed to an advanced stage.

For more pictures, more information, or how you can help, please visit MD Anderson online.
