About This Activity

7th annual Joey's Wings 5K run/walk will be on Sunday, Nov. 21st, 2021!
When you run/walk with us, you will be creating awareness and give HOPE to the 47 children and their families that are diagnosed every day. 
Joey's Wings Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit charity, was established in 2014 in the memory of Joey, a 10-year-old boy who loved to run, but was taken from us by childhood cancer on Nov. 26, 2014. 100% of all donations made will be used towards research and treatment options, parent support and advocacy. This year, proceeds will go to Ava, who is fighting glioma, a malignant type of brain tumor. Read more about her story below.
Race starts at 8:30am. Race day registration and packet pick up begins at 7:30am. There will be Zumba, music and food from local restaurants! T-shirts will be first come first serve for race day registrants. Please note that this year, the race will not be chip timed. The overall champion (women and men's) will each get a gift certificate ($350 value) from the B3 gym! A raffle will be drawn before the race day among online registrants. Raffle winners (6 winners) will each get a $25 gift card from fit2run!
