The Brenda Mehling Cancer Fund is pleased to announce that our Annual Fight It! race is on October 8 this year. The race raises thousands of dollars to help young professionals across The United States battling cancer by providing financial assistance.
According to the National Cancer Institute about 70,000 young people (ages 15-39) are diagnosed with cancer each year in the United States. This is about six times the number of cancers diagnosed in children ages 0-14.
Our 10K/5K/1K race and walk-a-thon is open to walkers and runners of all abilities…and their canine companions, too! This is a cross country trail so runners will appreciate a break from pounding their joints on concrete and asphalt and absolutely love this race.
We have options to run in person or VIRTUALLY – run the Fight It! 1K/5K/10K anywhere. All pre-registrants receive a tee shirt. All finishers (including virtually) receive a medal.
New this year is the opportunity to win a free cruise courtesy of Princess Cruises. For every $250 you raise your name will be put into a raffle for a $1,200 Princess Cruises Gift Card. This card can be used towards any cruise you want on Princess Cruises.
