The Run For The Children 5K & 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk celebrates all the young warriors and their families fighting cancer and those who partner to join in the fight against childhood cancer.
The virtual run is an easy, fun activity to support children diagnosed with cancer. Make a difference for these young heroes during such a tough time. Share your compassion and excitement with friends and show how you are living to help wipe out kids’ cancer.
Get your legs moving and know that your participation is so inspiring to our youngsters battling cancer. Create a corporate, school, or personal team in honor of someone you love.
What's Included: T-shirt, medal, bib, and loaded swag bag (20% off at RunOn!, coconut water, protein bars, desserts, earbuds, food coupons, and more!) will be picked up at RunOn! locations (November 4 & 5 from 3-7pm). For earlier packet pick-up, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

(NOTE: You only have one attempt, so be ready to run the total distance when you click "Track my run").
7a. When you finish your race, the app will automatically submit your time for your records, and you will receive your finisher's certificate. NOTE: Please try to run a few hundred yards more after reaching your 3.1 or 1.0 miles to ensure accuracy. We are so excited to have you join us. Have a great race!
7b. Complete this step if you are using a stopwatch. On the day you run, record your time manually. When you are finished, go to https://raceroster.com/dashboard/welcome.
