Join us on April 2nd for the inaugural CureChasers  5k Run / Walk benefiting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). The mission of LLS is to find cures for blood cancers and to assist patients, young and old, and their families as they fight this disease. This race is being organized in honor of two local heroes in Richmond Virginia, Bryant Hennessy who is 5 years old and Savanna Anchell who is 10 years old.  Both were diagnosed with acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). They are our heroes.  They inspire us to make a difference by raising money to help find a cure for blood cancers.  This event is open to anybody that would like to run, jog, or walk.

Enjoy a race on one of the premiere cross country courses in Virginia and afterwards stick around for a post-race massage by Muscle Mechanic, enjoy family friendly games hosted by American Family Fitness and enter your name for drawings for prizes!!
