WOW is all that we can say! You OUTRAN CANCER and YOU ROCK. Thank you to everyone that joined us on Saturday for the 7th Annual Darby Creek Trail Run. The energy around the start/finish line was fantastic, the speakers were amazing, the post-race party was bumping and the weather held out for us!
We were excited to welcome 325 runners this year! With the funds raised we will continue spreading cancer prevention awareness, reinforcing education and inspiring preventative action through events. Next up will be our 2nd Annual Prevent Event, where we will offer prevention tips, free health screenings, farmer’s market food sampling and fitness classes at VUE Columbus. Keep your eyes open for more details soon!
