STRONGER than Cancer Young Hero Celebration of Life & 5k

Thank you!

Thank you for making this event SO much more than a race! This awesome event honored and celebrated the cancer journeys of brave young cancer warriors. This year’s event was even better than last year! And we have you to thank for it.

During the 5k course, athletes earned beads along the way that honor a child’s cancer journey:

  • Blue Beads for HOPE

  • Red Beads for STRENGTH

  • Green Beads for RESILIENCE and TENACITY

  • GOLD Beads for BRAVERY at the Finish Line. Gold is the color of childhood cancer and Sept is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month! Show your colors!

Those who did the 1 mile Warrior Walk showed support for these brave kids.

This family-friendly event also had an amazing Kidz Fun Zone for the young and young at heart. Kids between ages 4 and 10 ran the 100 yard Young Hero Dash, while kids 3 and under participated in the 10 yard Diaper Dash.
