As the Phoenix Mercury races to the ultimate finish line, a third WNBA Championship, the team invites fans and Valley residents to “Run With Us” into the 2013 WNBA Playoffs by participating in the team’s inaugural “Race to the Playoffs” 5K walk/run on Sept. 14 at 7 a.m.

The race will start and end at US Airways Center, the home of the Phoenix Mercury, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit Children’s Cancer Network, a local nonprofit providing financial, educational and psychosocial support to Arizona’s children and families dealing with childhood cancer.

Participants will run the streets of downtown.

Fans can register at or at any remaining Mercury home game. Registration costs $35 through midnight on Sept. 11, and $45 Sept. 11-14.

After the race, the Phoenix Mercury will host a health and wellness expo filled with activities for the entire family, in the Casino Arizona Pavilion.
