Nearly everyone knows SOMEONE affected by cancer. Almost 12 million people in the United States today are living with cancer. Thankfully, more and more people are surviving. However, once cancer has left your body it does not leave your life. Come join us in supporting & honoring cancer survivors in our community!
All proceeds of the event will benefit the Annual Campaign which supports programs including LIVESTRONG at the YMCA. LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is a free 12 week program designed for adult cancer survivors suffering from deconditioning and fatigue at the conclusion of their treatment. The goal of the program is to assist individuals in improving their quality of life and developing lifelong healthy habits while providing individual attention in an encouraging and supportive group setting.

For all families who participate in the event, there will be free childcare provided for all children 3 and up for pre-registered participants! Be sure to stick around after the race for the Camp-a-palooza at Camp Northpoint! Activities will include field games, archery, swimming, climbing tower, and many more (some additional fees may apply, please bring cash).
