Description

This year marks the 28th anniversary of the Go for the Gold 5k Run, 3k Family Fun Walk and Children's Races. The annual fundraiser supports Brighter Tomorrows, Inc., an outreach to families who have been touched by childhood cancer. This race has been growing in recent years and the way in which the community has shown compassion, volunteered their time and money is overwhelming and heartwarming!

Who knows how it feels to be told "Your child has cancer?" We do.

Brighter Tomorrows understands the many challenges faced by families as each of its four founders dealt with a childhood cancer diagnosis. Some of these common challenges are emotional, informational, social, financial and spiritual. Each family has a unique set of circumstances and Brighter Tomorrows is there to offer help and offer HOPE.

Brighter Tomorrows offers many programs and services to families including:

Monthly family gatherings and retreats, hospital visits, provision of family care kits, sibling programs, professional speakers, and Tomorrows Chapter- a Bereavement Program.

Whether it's your first 5k Run or you'd just like to walk the 3k, you can take part in supporting Brighter Tomorrows. Following the race and walk, participants meet and hear the families directly benefiting from funds raised- all net proceeds support the children and their families. We look forward to seeing everyone at this year's Go for the Gold Event! Please help us spread the word by sharing on social media and asking your friends and family to join us on race day!

Thank you!
