Just getting started !

Here's the story behind the creation of this event !
The thought of one of my siblings actually dying is something I couldn't come to grips with. I couldn't wrap my mind around that. Cancer changed all that. My sister Michelle lost her battle this past March. Just weeks before I watched some dear friends bury their 30 year old at the end of his courageous battle. Everyone has been touched by cancer and once touched by cancer, the option to sit by and do nothing is pushed aside and is taken over by a desire to do something. Our goal is simple: To unite the Akron area community and to inspire others to get up and make a difference.
We invite you to the Inaugural Four Leaf Clover Run and Family Fun Run to benefit cancer patients of all ages right here in Northeast Ohio. We challenge you to the Four Leaf Challenge, you can Run It, Raise It , Team It and or Sponsor It.

The Inaugural Four Leaf Clover Run/Family Fun Run will be held on Saturday June 18th, 2016.
