Brandon’s Run is an event to help Brandon Burleson conquer cancer.  Brandon and his wife Jessica are expecting their first child in February.  Brandon, a local runner and hiker, first noticed something wrong with his thigh as he was completing the Appalachian Trail thru-hike back in 2008.   He has now been diagnosed with bone cancer.  This new family needs our help as they battle this disease.  Run Brandon’s Run or Walk Brandon’s Walk or be part of the event by donating what you can.

If you register by March 7th, you are guaranteed a Brandon's Run T shirt.
