Join us for our 1st annual Colors for Cancer Run to bring awareness for the fight against cancer. Each color represents a different type of cancer; such as Pink for Breast Cancer, Blue for Prostate, Lime Green for Lymphoma, Orange for Leukemia, and Purple for all Cancers.

Our race is looking to bring awareness back to our community to show the importance of research and funds that are needed to help those with cancer and to continue finding treatments and cures.

We encourage all those who come whether you are participating or not to add some pizzaz to your appearance with fun colors like rainbow socks, rainbow hair, colorful tutus, or colorful pants. Wear a color that represents someone who is dear to you that is fighting the battle or a color in remembrance for someone who lost the battle.

Course is a scenic and accurate 5k.
