Compete for a Cause 5k Fun Run

Sat September 15, 2018
Location: Mason, MI US 48854
Type: Run or Run/Walk, Run Only

Come out to support a great cause at the 3rd annual Compete for a Cause 5k Fun Run!  All proceeds will benefit St. Baldrick's Foundation as well as local non-profits and healthcare providers dedicated to caring for kids with cancer.  The race will be unofficially timed and participants will be able to honor those in their lives affected by cancer on their race bibs.

We are very excited to announce that the race will follow a new route this year!  Although still starting and ending at the Mason High School football field, this year it will follow along parts of the cross country route through the woods and grass next to the field.  This will make strollers fairly difficult to use along the route, but will provide some gorgeous scenery and will prevent any need to watch for cars during the race.

For the second year in a row, the race will kick off a week of Compete for a Cause sporting events that will culminate with soccer games between Mason and Okemos among other local high schools on Saturday, September 22.  Please visit competeforacause.org for a complete listing of the week's events.
