Join us as we kick off a new tradition - the Sun Life Run!  The event will take place on Saturday, March 5, 2016 at Copper Sky Recreation Complex in Maricopa.  With a 3 mile or 1 mile option, all runners/walkers will enjoy the perfect distance - whether you are a seasoned runner or coming out for the first time!

Need even more of a reason to run - this event is ALL about chocolate!  Bring out all your friends, family, co-workers, and everyone else you know because lets face it - EVERYONE LOVES CHOCOLATE!!

Working together to transform lives … be Sun Life!

Proceeds from this event help make access to health care more affordable and help under-insured and uninsured individuals choose cost-effective primary care over more expensive emergency room care. Over 36,000 children, women and men in Pinal County call Sun Life their healthcare home. Your support will assure their continued access to affordable healthcare in your community. We hope you will join us in our mission by choosing to support Sun Life in our efforts to make a difference. By supporting Sun Life, you are helping ensure a healthier community.
