About This Activity

The Run for a Cure 5k is a 3.1 mile run/walk at Boling Park in Canton, GA on January 16, 2016. This event is hosted by Madison Fowler for her senior project. All money raised will go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in honor of Madison's nephew, Warner, who was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis shortly after birth. Join us in the fight for a cure by signing up today!

There will be two registration options:

  • The 5k participant option is for those who wish to run or walk in the race.
  • The Ghost Runner option is for those who do not wish to run or walk in the race but still want to donate the $25 to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Ghost runners will recieve a race t-shirt with their donation.
