Get your running shoes ready for the 8th ANNUAL RUN FOR HOPE on Saturday, August 4, 2012.  The goal of the run is to raise awareness of carcinoid cancer, provide education, and give hope . . . while raising funds for carcinoid research and education and the Poudre Valley Cancer Center.  Organized by the Lambert family, the run will be held in the City Park, Fort Collins, Colorado.  Following the race and lunch, carcinoid/NET specialist Dr. Eugene Woltering from the Ochsner Medical Center–Kenner in  Lousiana will be a guest speaker at the Medical Center of The Rockies in Loveland.
