Below are a few photos from the library's 2nd Annual Race Against Cancer, which was held on November 13th, 2011.
It was a small, but enthusiastic turnout for our second race, early on a Sunday morning. A great and informative talk was given by the local Doctora Daniela Villagran from Farmacia de La Riviera here in Akumal: every 2 hours a woman dies of breast cancer in Mexico. Breast cancer and cervical cancer is being diagnosed among younger women in Mexico. She has some wonderful other facts and helped dispel some common myths about the causes of cancer. 
Then the racers lined up and took off into the jungle! The winner finished the 12 km. race in about 38 minutes. A woman, Mirna Pacho, was the OVERALL winner, showing us just how strong women are! 
Many thanks to all who participated and supported this event, especially our prize sponsors: Lol-Ha, Tequilaville & La Cueva del Pescador Restaurants, Mexico Maya Artesanias & Xel-Ha.
We hope to have a larger turnout again next year!
