Run For Purpose, Inc

Brings the community together to help support each other through run / walk events

Our purpose is to help raise cancer awareness, and assist with some financial burdens that many cancer survivors are facing just to keep up with the rising cost of healthcare, prescription drugs, and transportation expenses to and from treatments and doctor’s visits.

Join us on September 9, 2017 for our Paying It Forward All-Cancer 5K. We will be paying it forward by helping at least one cancer survivor with a $1500 Paying It Forward Grant.
