About This Activity

Brooke Hill was a young, vibrant, civic minded wife and mother of two beautiful girls. She fought a courageous battle with ovarian cancer. Prior to her passing she  asked her family and friends to organize events to bring awareness and to raise funds  for ovarian cancer research. Your participation in this event helps the cause and also keeps Brooke’s spirit alive. Thank you.

We ask that you make every effort to pre-register (post marked by 8/4, online by 10 pm 8/6) as this makes race day morning run more smoothly and the events to start on time.
