Run for Hope

Registration open!

Back for a second year at our new location in the Village of Coal Valley offering a unique and fun route. This 5K race and 1 mile Fun Run runs through the scenic neighborhoods of Coal Valley and is about honoring and celebrating everyone in our community that is impacted by cancer.

Bring the whole family, neighborhood friends, or a group of co-workers. There is even a spot for your pup. The Purina Doggy Dash not only allows you to run with your pup, but for them to receive a commemorative doggie bandana! (Additional $10)

Custom race bibs for you to show who you are running for. You also have the option to honor a loved one with a yard sign with their name along the race route. Whether they are currently living with cancer, a survivor, or were lost to cancer. After the race, you can pick your sign up to keep for your yard.

Awards will be given for the overall 5K men’s & women’s champions, overall 5K men’s and women’s survivor champions, and for 5-year age groups in both the men & women division from 14 to 75 years old. Awards will also be given for the largest family and corporate team.
