About This Activity

Since it began in 1985, the Labor of Love Run has been known for two things. One is its status as a first-class race for the running community in Northeast Ohio. Now featuring a 5-mile run for relay teams and individuals, as well as a 1-mile fun run/walk, there is something for everyone in the family.

And speaking of family, that focus is the second thing this race is known for. Each year the proceeds benefit ICU Mobile and Pregnancy Support Center of Stark County. Both nonprofit pregnancy support lefts are committed to providing women, men, and teens with pregnancy-related help, information, and caring support when they face an unplanned or crisis pregnancy. These fine pro-life organizations provide all services free of charge and with confidentiality.
