Spend a beautiful, Fall morning in Goochland running through the beautiful West Creek Business Park, conveniently located off of Route 288. The race begins and ends at Kindred Spirit Brewing (parking available on site) and the course will follow scenic West Creek Parkway. The scenery will be great and the cause even greater as we raise funds for pediatric cancer research in memory of Cooper Henry Abbott who lost his battle to the disease in November 2017 at age 9. Bring your kids and your family as we race to bring CHAnge to kids fighting cancer. 


Our 2021 goal is $30,000! Donate today to help us fund research into new treatments for kids facing cancer.
