AFAC Fun Run & Walk

The Aiming for a Cure Fun Run/Walk is an annual event held to raise additional funds for the Aiming for a Cure Foundation’s mission of helping to fight childhood cancer. The Fun Run & Walk is a great way to support the needs of both children with cancer and their families. You also get the additional benefits of meeting some wonderful people and spending some time outdoors in the beautiful late summer sunshine!

All Are Welcome

There’s a spot for you at the Fun Run & Walk regardless of your fitness level. Whether you’re racing against the clock or just taking a sociable walk with friends, you’ll have plenty of happy faces to keep you company. The event gets a little bigger each year but there’s always room for you. Come on out and donate a little of your time for this wonderful charity event.

    We had such a great time last year and are hoping to get a big team together again this year. This year we are celebrating Mitchell’s successful bone marrow transplant. What a passion your family has for helping children with cancer. You have truly touched our family and many others that fight the battle every day. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the love you share.
    Don’t Stop Believin’
