Race for the Ribbon - Saturday, July 19, 7:30 a.m. Rain or Shine: Race for the Ribbon is a 5K Run/Walk in memory of my mom, Nancy Hendershot, who lost her battle to breast cancer in 2008.  This is the 7th year for the Race for the Ribbon and to date this event has raised close to $70,000, most of which has been donated to the American Cancer Society.  Approximately $10,000 has been donated to two local families who have children coping with cancer.  It is my hope to promote awareness and raise funds in order to fight this terrible disease.  The race will start and finish on the corner of Wilmington Avenue and the Boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach.  There will be a post-race breakfast buffet which is free to all participants.  Non-participants can enjoy the breakfast for a donation.  There will be live music outside and a DJ inside as well as great Silent Auction items on which you can bid. Thank you, Stephanie Shuttleworth.

The price of liberty is eternal vigilance.
