The event raised USD243,000 for the MedStar Washington Hospital Center cancer research. The 917 participants raced off at 8:00am from the starting point, Four Seasons Hotel.
"This year’s Race to Beat Cancer 5K was especially meaningful for the Four Seasons family,” says David Bernand, general manager, Four Seasons Hotel Washington, DC. "We lost a dear friend, an employee of 30 years and my executive assistant, Gail Bennett to cancer just one week before the event [..]. Although bittersweet, it was a true honour for Four Seasons Hotel Washington to yet again be part of such a powerful stance against cancer.”
