Charity Runner is the American Cancer Society's signature endurance event program that enables athletes of all levels to turn their passion for half-marathons, marathons, triathlons, or cycling races into a lifesaving effort to fight cancer.
With the Charity Runner program, athletes are able to make their miles more meaningful by dedicating their efforts to the fight against cancer, and in honor or memory of a loved one.
The Society has partnered with Sun Multisport Events to become the official charity of the Cranberry Trifest, enabling many triathletes to participate in the event while raising valuable dollars that will help save lives.
Charity Runner participants must commit to raising a minimum of $1,000. In return, they will receive many benefits, including:
Personalized Web page to assist in fundraising efforts
Free training program and access to coaches
Exclusive American Cancer Society racing shirt
Opportunity to dedicate your participation in memory or in honor of a loved one touched by cancer
The American Cancer Society's mission as a nationwide community-based voluntary health organization is to eliminate cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy and service. Please help by becoming a Charity Runner today!

I am actually waiting to see the tablet that hp releases running webOS. I have a palm Pre and even though there was some hardware issues at it was a first generation device the OS is very nice and easy to use. Great Multitasking. I am interested to put that device and the iPad next to each other.
