Event Description

About the Event

Join us for the 4th Annual ReeseStrong 5K and Gold Ribbon Kid's Run on Saturday, September 15, 2012 at 8:30 AM.  Once again, we are racing to fight childhood cancer that has interrupted the lives of families in our community.  This race allows us to bring awareness to these children's fight, educate about childhood cancer, and help ease the burden on our friends who are raising their children in and out of the hospital.  Proceeds from this event will go directly towards medical expenses for these families.  In its first three years, we have been able to donate over $50,000.  Following the race, we will have a festival with food, bounceables, raffle prizes, games, and much more.

Who is ReeseStrong? 

The ReeseStrong Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity, is dedicated to helping families stay strong in the battle against childhood cancer.  Visit to register for the event, donate, and learn more about ReeseStrong.
