We Will Find a Cure is happy to present our third annual super casual, super fun #BeatCancer race again offering both a Virtual and Live Event. As always, 100% of the proceeds will go to help find a cure for cancer via the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. This particular event is themed the Road to Kona because it is part of a $130,000 goal leading to the Ironman World Championships on October 14, 2017. Christopher Wilno was nominated for a charity slot to the World Championships tied to a deeply personal story but this race and the overall Road to Kona is for everyone ever touched by cancer and so that the future can perhaps be cancer free. You can read more about the overall story at We Will Find a Cure . We have designed some awesome t-shirts and medals whether you choose our live event in Venice, CA or choose to run on your own as part of our virtual event.
Live 5K Fun Run
If you are in SoCal and available, please join us Saturday, September 9, 2017 at Cabo Cantina in Venice California as we raise funds to help rid this world of cancer. This is a super casual and super fun event. There are no timing chips but there are some awesome shirts and medals and, if you choose, all you can drink mimosas and Bloody Mary’s at Cabo Cantina after the race. Feel free to push yourself. Be as competitive as you want. Be as un-competitive as you want. This is about a group of people getting together to hit the streets of Venice, gather afterward for food and drinks all the while knowing we made a difference. Just a reminder, 100% of the proceeds will go to charity. Even Cabo Cantina is donating a portion of their proceeds to the cause.
If you do not live in SoCal or simply cannot join us for our live event, please sign up for our virtual race and join the Road to Kona with us.

Run/walk a mile or complete an ultra-marathon or anything in between.

The front of the shirt features our logo and the back features a quote that has driven this journey for a long time.
