Description

THANK YOU FOR AN INCREDIBLE 2023 EVENT! WE RAISED $11,000 for St. Baldrick's Foundation. 2024 Registration opens September 1st!

 

We are SO excited to do it again! Join us Sunday, October 20th for the THIRD Annual Abby Furco Memorial Color Fun Run honoring Abby, our beloved friend who passed away too soon along with supporting and loving all those affected by childhood cancer.

 

Our color fun run/walk, is a non-bib, approx. 5k course filled with color stations throughout. You can run, walk, push a stroller...bring your entire family!! Come out and celebrate life while also giving back to childhood cancer foundations that helped Abby, her family and other childhood cancer fighters!! 

 

The event is a fundraiser hosted by Abby's Legacy Foundation benefitting St. Baldrick's Foundation and EDMARC. All donations are tax-deductible. See more about both charities on our Donate Page!

 

This event is fully funded by local sponsors, we are so thankful for them. We are looking for additional business & individual race sponsors to help cover the race costs so more money can go to charity! Please contact pattylynn1@aol.com for more info. Last year our event was 100% community sponsored & all registration fees went to charity...we hope to do it again!!
