AKRON LOCALS TEAM UP AGAIN TO FIGHT BREAST CANCER

The Rail is again teaming up with Akron natives Kathy & Lee Giller and Nancy Schrader for its fourth annual “Rail Against Breast Cancer”. The benefit will be held on Sunday, May 3rd from 5:30PM - 8:30pm to raise funds for team Breast Man Walking’s participation in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day, a 60-mile walk to erase breast cancer.

For the past nine years, team “Breast Man Walking” has made it their mission to raise awareness and more than $330,000 to help find a cure for breast cancer. 75% of the proceeds they raise is used strictly for research purposes, while the remainder funds local community programs that support education, screening and treatment.

2015 marks a very special milestone for Lee Giller as he celebrates ten years of survivorship. 

The 3-Day has given us a community of love and hope since Lee's diagnosis,” says Lee’s wife, Kathy Giller. “And, ironically, if it were not for breast cancer, we may never have met some of these most wonderful people. If breast cancer is the lemon, then the 3-Day is our lemonade!”

Ticket holders for the “Rail Against Breast Cancer” will enjoy an evening of live music by Akron’s Swizzle Stick Band, auction and raffle items, as well as The Rail’s all-Ohio burger sliders, locally sourced hand-dipped milkshakes, locally distilled spirits and tasty house-made sides.  All-Ohio beer samples will be served up at the bar by celebrity bartender Monica Robins, WKYC’s Senior Health Correspondent.

Tickets for this private event are $75 per person. For advance reservations, please contact The Rail at 330-864–RAIL {7245}.

The two other RAIL locations (Canton - Belden Village Mall and North Olmsted - Great Northern Mall) will also be donating a portion of their profits for the day.
