The Leukemia Cup “Run for Jane,” 5K Run/Walk & Kids Run, Fort Pulaski

The Leukemia Cup “Run for Jane,” is a 5K Run/Walk and Kids Run held in conjunction with the 2011 St. Joseph’s/Candler Leukemia Cup Regatta Weekend of Events. It is named in honor of Dr Jane Philbrick, who is well
described by Mr Paul Hinchey as being a, “very well known educator here in Savannah and a strong
community supporter. She was a remarkable person, a consummate professional and had a heart of gold.”

Opportunities to receive a $100 Fleet Feet Gift Card and more great prizes are available to those participants who choose to individually fundraise for the “Run for Jane”. The Leukemia Cup is a community coming together through a series of sporting events to help fight leukemia, lymphoma, and other blood cancers and includes; a 5k Run/Walk, golf, junior fishing, in-shore fishing, tennis, sailing and the Spirit of the Sea black-tie dinner & auction. In 1997, The Leukemia Cup began as a Sailing Regatta and has since emerged as a premier series of sporting events benefitting the mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

 “Run for Jane” will be held at the historic Fort Pulaski. It is a beautiful trail run in and out of the woods around the Fort and by the river. The Event would not be complete without our National Anthem and the cannons firing by the soldiers in their historic regalia.
