Description

It’s back and in-person — Our Strength in Colors 5K will be held on Sunday, July 25th, at McNamara Park in Galena! We are excited to offer a Kid’s Dash for the 10 and under age group which will run at approximately 8:45 a.m. followed by the 9:00 a.m. start of the 5K. Both races will offer virtual and in-person registrations so anyone, anywhere can participate!

The purpose of The Crawford Crew's 5K is to Raise Awareness of HPV-Related Cancers, educate the community about prevention, and to support those in need of cancer screenings and emotional support.

According to the CDC, each year, about 35,900 new cases of cancer are associated with HPV: about 21,100 in women and 14,800 in men. (there are 6 types of these cancers) All HPV-related cancers are preventable. Screenings, annual exams, education and the HPV vaccine are prevention!

Raising awareness for 6 cancers

Here are the colors that represent each of the cancers that we are raising awareness for:
