About This Activity

Run For Love was the idea of two 9-yr old girls who wanted to help kids with cancer. The idea came one day while the girls were at recess talking about their recent haircuts. One idea led to another and soon they had a very detailed plan. The idea was to have a race and afterward hair cutting stations where people could cut and donate their hair to help make wigs for kids. Included would be food and entertainment and a way to help kids with cancer feel special. It would be called “Run For Love”. Little did they know that the day we received approval to partner with ProMedica Toledo Children’s Hospital, their classmate would announce that she had a rare type of cancer. This made the girls want to make the event a reality even more.

Join us for a 3.1 mile run and walk in downtown Toledo, starting and finishing at Hensville.
