Description:

This event will inspire and help many in the greatest of need!! This race began in 2011 when two wonderful ladies decided to host a 5k to raise funds for our family as our precious daughter, Addison was battling cancer. Unfortunately, Addison passed from cancer just a few short weeks later leaving an amazing legacy behind. She was and continues to be an inspiration to so many. Due to the outpouring of love and support from our community and surrounding communities, the Addison Jo Blair Foundation was established in Addison's memory in 2011. This will be the 7th annual Addison Jo Blair 5k. All proceeds from this race will go to the Addison Jo Blair Foundation which raises funds to support the following:

  • The Addison Jo Blair Cancer Care Center at Norton Children's Hospital in Louisville, KY. 
  • CURESEARCH, funding for pediatric cancer research that focuses on new treatment drugs, protocols, and cures through clincial trials and research.
  • Needs assistance to families whose children are undergoing cancer treatment given in the form of gift cards (gas, meal, and other basic necessities).
  • The Addison Jo Blair Memorial Scholarship given in honor and memory of our daughter, Addison.
