Minions for Moffitt

Fellow Minions,

The 13th Annual Miles for Moffitt run/walk will be held on December 8 at Amalie Arena's Ford Thunder Alley.  In a weird twist of fate, the new date falls on the same day as the Alvarez-Blakey wedding.  Although the Alvarez-Blakey family will not be physically participating on race day, we will most definitely be registered as virtual runners and cheering on our fellow Moffitt participants in spirit!

Thanks to all of you, Team Minions for Moffitt raised over $8,000 last year! Are you ready to do it again?! This year, Jose and Romy Alvarez have committed to dropping their pants on the dance floor at the Alvarez-Blakey wedding if we hit our goal of $10,000! 

Every dollar we raise goes completely to support lifesaving cancer research at Moffitt Cancer Center. Moffitt researchers are at the very front lines of the effort to defeat cancer. They've already made so many amazing breakthroughs, and cancer patients here in Florida and around the world have benefited from their efforts. 

Thank you for helping save lives and defeat cancer by supporting Miles for Moffitt!

As most of you know, my family and I started participating in Miles for Moffitt in 2014 in honor of my mom, Miriam Alvarez.  The name Minions for Moffitt arose from my mom’s love of minions and general craziness (some may call her bananas). So throw on your minion shirts (full-out minion costumes are also welcome) and join us in our race against cancer!
