Run The Chocolate Challenge
If you like a refreshing morning run followed by delicious chocolate treats, then this event is for you. The Chocolate Challenge is a charity race that supports Kelleigh's Cause, an organization created to raise funds for Arteriovenous Malformations (AVM) and rare disease research. This charity focuses on community involvement. Our goal is to hold a community wide event while raising critical funds for necessary medical research and public education.
All runners will receive a shirt, medal, and post race chocolate! Post race music will include DJ Bill T.

We are having a great turnout this year, Thank you to everyone that registered and is participating in the Chocolate Challenge.
However, at this point we are out of some shirt sizes. When registering, if your size is sold out, you have the option of No Shirt, or to have your shirt mailed at a later date. For anyone hoping to make a shirt exchange for a different size other than what was selected in registration, we cannot guarantee that shirts will be available after the race to exchange.
All the proceeds from this race go towards Kelleigh's Cause!
Kelleigh’s Cause, Inc is a nationally recognized 501(c)3 tax-exempt charitable organization founded in Central New York. Our charity is set up to raise awareness, provide family resources, and fund research for arteriovenous malformation (AVM).
Money is needed to pay for the tests that analyze proteins produced by AVMs and test new/repurposed drugs for AVM.
We are currently supporting educational programs for Syracuse area families and doctors. Our primary research funding includes "The Kelleigh Gustafson Accelerated AVM Research Fund" at Boston's Children's Hospital. All contributions to this fund are matched dollar for dollar.
Your support is greatly appreciated!
