Enjoy a fun family afternoon, complete with pre-run activities, finish-line snacks, and prizes. Connect with other families, patients, and survivors in a community-spirited event! New this year: runners have the option of being chip-timed with awards presented to winners. Participants at any level are welcome to join in the fun! For more information, visit our event website.
