Help us raise money for the Fanconi Anemia Research Fund in honor of Eli Lana, of Hilton, NY.
The 5K run, 2 mile walk and virtual participation registrations are guaranteed tech/wicking fabric shirts if registered by April 14th. After this date cotton blend shirts will be substituted while supplies last.
Kids' Fun Run participants receive a medal and a coupon for a free cone from Abbott's Frozen Custard in Hilton.
The course is a beautifully maintained cross country trail through open and wooded areas of Parma Town Park. It's moderately challenging with a few hills. This is NOT a road race. Whether you're walking or running, you'll enjoy the picturesque surroundings and you'll want to come back.
The walk/untimed run course is shorter, about 2 miles total. While our course is not what we'd call stroller friendly, some have braved it with all-terrain strollers. There are a number of hills on the trail and a good portion of it is a grassy field.
Fun Run particpants will receive a finishing medal and a coupon for a free Kiddie Cone at Abbott's (Hilton location).
USATF Sanctioned Event.
Fanconi anemia is an inherited disease that can lead to bone marrow failure and cancer. Though considered primarily a blood disease, FA may affect all systems of the body. It is a complex and chronic disorder that is psychologically demanding. FA is also a cancer-prone disease, affecting patients decades earlier than the general population.
