This is SO much more than a race! This is an awesome event to honor and celebrate the cancer journeys of brave young cancer warriors. This is a beautiful CERTIFIED  5k course through downtown Abacoa. The course is flat and fast, and lined with superheroes (bring your camera!). Bring your friends and start a team.
