The inaugural Ian's Army 5K Run/Walk takes place on a scenic course during the peak of autumn at FDR State Park on October 25th at 12 pm.  100% of the proceeds from the race benefit the Manzares family in helping Ian Manzares fight his second battle with cancer.

Ian beat cancer the first time at age 4. After 10 years in remission, at 14, his cancer came back. But Ian is a fighter, and your participation in the Ian’s Army 5K Run/Walk will help Ian and the Manzares family win this fight! – For more information on Ian’s battle and to make additional donations please visit:
