Why the slogan CRAP? Cancer is CRAP but with faith, humor and support, we can beat the CRAP out of Cancer! The Crap Run is held each year in loving memory of Venecia Butler who wanted to spread some love to her fellow patients receiving treatment by giving them a Care Bag full of useful items. Show your support by running or walking for those warriors in treatment who need a little pick me up provided by our Care Bags.
Due to COVID-19, we have had to make a few changes following CDC guidelines such as no award ceremony, no race day registration, appropriate social distancing, etc. We would love to see all our valuable supporters near and far at our 8th Annual Crap Run, but we understand a level of comfort in these trying COVID times may force some supporters to forgo a traditional in-person race. Not wanting to leave anyone out, we have added a VIRTUAL 5K RUN option.
Choose your event location:
Traditional 5K Crap Run. Join us in person on our regular course in Piedmont, AL. This course is relatively flat which is good for beginner runners getting into the groove or experienced runners looking for that speed challenge. Plus, we will hold a 1-mile Kid Fun Run for children 10 and under. It will still be an evening of friendly but socially distanced competition and celebration. GO ALL OUT and wear your CRAZIEST GLOW IN THE DARK OUTFIT!!
Virtual 5K Crap Run. If your level of comfort or your schedule does not allow you to participate with us in person on October 3rd, sign up for our Virtual 5k and run or walk anytime on any course between September 5-October 2nd.
Cancellation of Traditional 5k and Fun Run: Our traditional races are run rain or shine, however, we may be forced to cancel our event due to COVID-19. You will be notified immediately by texts or emails if the events are cancelled. Unfortunately, we cannot offer a refund for either the 5k or Fun Run events. Runners registered for our Traditional 5k will have an option to switch to our Virtual 5K or have their registration fee donated to the event. You will receive an official tax receipt for the registration fee that has been converted to a donation. But lets stay positive and healthy so we can run for this great cause.
Venecia's Foundation is an incorporated, 501C(3) non-profit organization. Our purpose is to provide aid, support, and comfort to cancer patients and their families. Cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy and/or radiation spend hours at a hospital to receive treatment. Venecia's goal for this Foundation was to brighten the day of those in treatment by sharing our faith and love. Keeping her dream alive, Venecia's Foundation stuffs care bags with large soft blankets, chapstick, journal, soft toothbrush and toothpaste, dental floss, puzzle/crossword book, travel size pillow, lubricant eye drops, sugar free candy and gum, Lubriderm lotion (24oz), ink pen; port pillows, tissues and a gas card. These bags are being sent to surrounding hospitals, doctor offices and even mailed to places around the country. All this is only possible with the support of donations and fundraising.
