About This Activity

The race will begin and end in beautiful downtown Lagrange on the town square.

Our goal is to raise awareness for childhood cancer and to raise money to fund research.

More children are lost to cancer in the U.S. than any other disease—in fact, more than many other childhood diseases combined.
    Before they turn 20, about 1 in 300 boys and 1 in 333 girls will have cancer.
    Worldwide, a child is diagnosed every 3 minutes.
In the 1950s, almost all kids diagnosed with cancer died. Because of research, today about 85% of kids with the most common type of cancer will live. But for many other types, progress has been limited, and for some kids there is still little hope for a cure.

Your participation in this event will help raise money for childhood cancer research to give children and their families hope in finding a cure!
