Home > Mercy News > Online Voting Determines Especially for You® Race T-shirt Color
Published on May 01, 2018
The votes are in and this year’s Especially for You® Race Against Breast Cancer T-shirt color has been determined by the outcome of an online public poll. And the winner is … RETRO HEATHER CORAL!
Beginning April 16, those interested in helping to determine the shirt color could go to the link on the EFY website, as well as EFY and Mercy social media sites Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and cast their vote. The three color choices were Irish green, retro heather coral and neon yellow. Voting ended on April 30.
Race organizers hope to see more than 15,000 participants wearing the shirts on race day, which is Sunday, Oct. 7.
Race registration is open at www.especiallyforyourace.org. Team registration is available through Sept. 7. Individuals may register up until 7:30 a.m. on race day. Reduced pricing is offered for those who register early.
The race proceeds provide financial assistance for breast-care and gynecological cancer services to local individuals in need. The EFY Fund now covers breast, ovarian, uterine, cervical, vulvar and vaginal cancer services at participating local medical providers.
Co-founders of the race are Mercy Medical Center and General Mills. Those who register for the race receive an EFY T-shirt and a General Mills goodie bag.
