About This Activity

(Fun Run 5k - Kids 1k - Diaper Dash)

Get your running/walking shoes on and join the Holt Rams Cross Country Teams and the rest of the Holt & Dimondale Community as we run for a cure against Multiple Sclerosis and Pancreatic Cancer. Experts think there are currently 250,000 to 350,000 people in the United States diagnosed with MS. This estimate suggests that approximately 200 new cases are diagnosed every week. Cancers of the exocrine pancreas are a very serious health issue. In the United States, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) reports that approximately 46,420 people are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and about 39,590 people die from the disease each year. These two critical conditions have greatly impacted Holt Rams Cross Country over the years - please join us in our efforts to contribute to the research being conducted to find cures. Additionally, funds from this races will be donated to the H.O.L.T. Scholarship Program, a donor-supported project to help qualifying students in the Holt Public School District receive an advanced education opportunity at Lansing Community College.
