Wings to hold 5K run for benefit

To show support for local Wings

Chapter, a benefit for local cancer patients, the organization W.E.

Running has organized a 5K run/walk at 11 a.m. Oct. 16 in Troy.

Wings proceeds support patients with

travel, food and lodging during their cancer treatments.

Participants must call Josie Fisher at

208 640-3252 before Oct. 16 for preregistration, cost is $25.

U.S. Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., showed

his support for the benefit in a letter to Wings:

"I am thrilled to express my support

for the W.E. 5 K Run/Walk in Troy, Montana. When you started this

special event in July 2011, you said you had no idea it would

garner such an outpouring of support from Troy and especially the

surrounding communities. I wish you nothing but the best in your

efforts to host another run on October 16th to benefit the local

Wings Chapter.

One of the reasons I am so proud to

represent Montana in the U.S. Senate, is Montanans' commitment to

helping out their neighbors, this event does exactly that. The W.E.

5K Run/Walk not only teaches and encourages the community of

Lincoln County to keep active, it also shows support for those who

are fighting against cancer. Hosting this event to benefit Wings, a

100% volunteer organization to help cancer patients with travel,

food and lodging during their treatment, is a nobal cause.

As an avid runner I personally know the

positive effects of keeping active. I applaud those in the

community who are participating in this event and are committed to

keeping our citizen's active and healthy. Again, I am proud to

support the W.E. 5K and your effort to support your neighbors.
