About the Event
Join us for the 8th Annual ReeseStrong 5K and Gold Ribbon Kid's Run on Saturday, September 17, 2016 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. Stay for the family friendly festival following the 5k.
