Join us on Saturday evening, April 5 at Sharon Woods Metro Park as we light up the woods to help burn survivors and their families. The proceeds from the 4 mile run and walk go the Burn Unit Access Fund at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center to help burn survivors pay for bandages, pressure garments, supplies  and community resources.   

We are lighting up the Sharon Woods multipurpose trail as you walk and run in support of burn survivors and their families. Each participant will also receive a glow stick and necklace to help us "Blaze the Trail" that night. 

The first 150 finishers receive a Blaze the Trail finisher medal.
