Hash for Pancreatic Cancer

One of the many reasons I love the Hash is because of the amazing outpouring of love and support hashers are capable of. Just one example, and a topical one at that, is the reason for tonight's Signal Hill Hash in SoCal:

"Pillsbury's good friend, Dona McBride is running the LA M*thon to benefit Pancreatic Cancer Research.
For you new hashers, in 2006 and 2007, we lost Mary Tyler Whore and Teenage Enema Nurse (T.E.N.) to pancreatic cancer. Doubtless, you may know others personally who have succumbed to the disease. 

To help Dona with her endeavor, I am putting on a special (but regular) Signal Hill Hash. There will be premium beer donated by On What? as well as the usual munchies, so that 100% of whatever is collected can benefit the Hirshberg Foundation. 

The run will be the usual $5, but if you are willing to donate any extra, it would be greatly appreciated."

If you are in the SoCal area and can make it out, the pack would be greatly appreciative (and you'll get some good beer!). The run is $5, all proceeds put towards the Hirshberg Foundation, starting at 7pm from the US Bank parking lot on Cherry and Willow in Long Beach, CA.

For more information, check out www.hash.org.

If hashing isn't for you, how about a 10k or Half Marathon benefiting the Pancreatic Cancer Research Foundation?

It's not too late! Train and run the LA Marathon for Pancreatic Cancer with the Hirshberg Training Team.
