Register for the Clovis Breakaway Mile and Vote for Local Champion
Registration is now open for Amgen’s Breakaway Mile in Clovis which will take place in conjunction with Stage 4 of the 2012 Amgen Tour of California on May 16.
The Breakaway Mile is a special walk to honor the millions of cancer survivors worldwide that ends at the Clovis Amgen Tour of California finish line prior to the day’s finish of the professional race. Participants not only have the opportunity to walk along the race course, but also are invited to view the race action from a special reserved area near the finish line complete with refreshments. Registration is limited to the first 150 people. Sign up at www.amgentourofcalifornia.com/breakawaymile.
The Breakaway Mile shines the spotlight on an individual who has been an inspiration within the local Clovis cancer community. During the Breakaway Mile, the Breakaway from Cancer® Champion and an Amgen scientist who plays a crucial role in developing breakthrough medicines, are joined by community members – patients with cancer, survivors, caregivers, and advocates – who support the fight against cancer. Online nominations for the Breakaway from Cancer Champion were accepted from March 2 to March 23 to identify candidates and online voting begins Friday, April 13 to select the local Breakaway from Cancer Champion. Visit www.breakawayfromcancer.com/champions to vote. Only one vote per person and online voting closes April 24.
