About This Activity

The 5th Annual Race for GRACE presented by CHI Health/Saint Francis is a fantastic event that allows people of all ages to honor family and friends affected by cancer. This event features a 10K loop that starts by heading down South Locust Street and circles around the city. There is also a 2-Mile Family Fun Run around the streets of downtown Grand Island. All proceeds will go the GRACE Foundation (Grand Island Area Cancer Endowment) to benefit local cancer patients, survivors and their families. Our mission is to provide you with a magnificent run/walk opportunity, a fun atmosphere and to support a great cause all at the same time!!!

Get your name on your bib.  Must register by April 2 to receive a personalized bib.

First 2,500 participants to register will receive a cinch bag!

Each participant will receive a short-sleeved race t-shirt (or the option of a dri-fit shirt for an additional cost), timing bib and post-race snacks.  Group themes are welcome.  Free popcorn and pop will be available inside the Grand Theater.
