History of the event: Colors Against Cancer began in 2017 by Evans Drugs-Osceola and the Osceola Optimist Club as a fundraiser to help children and their families fight childhood cancer. The first year of the race, the proceeds benefited St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. During 2017-2018 the race directors became aware of a sweet little girl named Aislyn with ties to our community who is currently battling cancer and consistently wears an infectious smile. The proceeds from last year's event went to Aislyn and her family as well as children in St. Jude's Research Hospital. This year, proceeds will go to St. Jude's, with donations available to local children battling cancer if the needs arise. Thank you for partnering with us to fight childhood cancer!
