The 7th annual Fearless 5K will take place Saturday, August 17, 2019, at Goshen Memorial Park in Mechanicsburg, Ohio at 10:00 am.  This scenic race on a cross-country course is nestled in the beautiful landscape of Champaign County and is hosted by Running4Life, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  This organization’s mission is to help children and their families who are facing life-threatening illnesses. 

Because of the nearly 1500 people who ran, walked, skipped, cheered and sponsored the past Fearless 5K races, this organization has been able to assist and provide much-needed relief to families with medical and travel expenses. Since Running4Life was formed, more than 20 children and their families have received assistance from the organization during their fight against their diseases.  We are blessed to celebrate with many of the fund recipients as some are able to run or walk the race. We also gather in prayer with families who have lost their dear children to such dreaded diseases.

The race begins at 10:00 am, with registration opening at 8:00 am.  Pre-registration for both the 5K and 1-mile events is $30 and includes a t-shirt, medal and swag bag.  Registration on race day is $35 and does not guarantee a t-shirt. There will also be a Kids Fun Run prior to the 5K race, for children 10 and under.  The cost is $15 and includes a t-shirt, medal and free admission to the bounce houses. 

Running4Life thanks you for your continued support!
