The Countdown has Begun!

One month from now, on October 8th, we will be hosting our second annual Devin’s Dash Memorial 5K. Hilton Head Health hosts this annual event in honor of beloved staff member Devin Sheaffer who passed away in 2010 after a courageous battle with cancer. As many of you who have visited H3 before know, staff are more than just the people who book your reservations, cook your meals and show you a few workout routines. We honestly care. Devin was an ear for those who needed someone to talk to and a friend to many. His dedication to health went beyond work hours as Devin was also an avid runner. What better way than to honor a friend, than with a race in his name.

Although I did not have the pleasure of meeting Devin, based on all the stories I’ve heard I feel as though I know him. And with all the care and little details of the race that reflect Devin’s personality, I know that he is truly missed. Although I don’t know Devin, I do know several people who have been affected by cancer. In fact, an estimated 11.7 million Americans alive today have had cancer. Organizations such as the American Cancer Society, have worked tirelessly to raise funds to help save lives all over the nation. Last year Hilton Head Health, and Devin’s Dash sponsors and participants raised over $10,000 for the cause. This year we hope to surpass that!

With the addition of the Devin’s Dashers 5K training plan and the Sponsorship Expo the night before the race, we are determined to make this year even bigger than last year! With only one month until race day, join us in spreading the word and raising funds for the American Cancer Society in a fit and healthy way!

Here’s how you can help:

  • Register for this year’s race!
  • Select ‘attending’ on the Devin’s Dash Event Page on Facebook and change your Facebook profile picture to the Devin’s Dash logo.
  • If you can’t make it to Devin’s Dash this year, you can still make a contribution in Devin’s name by donating here.
  • Encourage one another by commenting on the Devin’s Dash Facebook Event Page and on the H3 Facebook Wall! The Devin’s Dashers Training Group is on Week 4 of training; be sure to give them shout outs on the H3 Facebook Wall!

The countdown has officially begun!
