Our organization is dedicated to aiding individuals and families who have been stricken by cancer. Established 17 years ago after Diane lost her battle with cancer, the fund has aided families and supported organizations who help patients battle the disease. We also support the Thomaston Food Pantry & Crisis Fund and other local charities.
Ten years ago we decided to also promote wellness in the community and have earmarked a portion of the proceeds to the Thomaston Track and Tennis Facility at Nystrom's Park. Mission Accomplished!!
The race is also a time to honor our Veterans and remember all those who lost their lives on 9-11. Diane and Mike were instrumental in organizing the Flag Run Across America and the 50 state flags collected during the run hang as a remembrance at our finish line.
Medals awarded to all fun run participants.
Prize to first overall male and female.
1st, 2nd, and 3rd places will receive awards in the following age groups:
