SAVE THE DATE FOR THIS YEAR'S RACE: APRIL 24, 2021!

The 21st Annual "Walk with a Friend" 5k Run | 1 Mile Walk  benefits Friends of Kids with Cancer's Educational, Emotional, and Recreational programming and provides a way for individuals to support, honor, and remember kids with cancer.  Rain or Shine, we're here to help kids with cancer... be kids!

We encourage the formation of teams to participate together in our event. Team leaders should contact Mary McKee (mary@friendsofkids.com) if you have any questions about building a team.
