Event Description

Emerald City. Get ready, as we bring SWEETNESS in our 10th Annual event to support the Fetal Health Foundation.

CANDY! Just the word elicits a smile. Whether you are 5 or 95, surely you have your favorite kind and sweet memories of it, too. Brussels sprouts? Nah. Asparagus? Don’t think so… but mention candy and you could certainly spend hours talking about popular lollipops to cherished chocolate bars!

There was — and is — something exciting about going to the candy store and looking at all the great confectionary delights. We combine those memories and all that excitement in our family-centered event in support of the Fetal Health Foundation.

The Great Candy Run (formerly Eat Run Hope) is an event with memorable experiences. Participants and spectators alike will enjoy the fun and fast 5K course designed with walkers and runners in mind, a family festival featuring games, activity stations, amazing face painting, great refreshments, giveaways and much, much more! 


  • Fun themed day while supporting a great cause
  • Prize money in the 5K
  • Stroller Division (yep you get prize money too)
  • Family Fun Expo (lot's of activities and sweet fun)
  • Costume Contest
  • Everyone gets a finisher medal!
  • Free Kids Jelly Bean Fun Run (for kids 10 & Under)

The Great Candy Run is ultimately about saving lives and helping families. Proceeds from these events directly benefit the Fetal Health Foundation. The Fetal Health Foundation supports families battling a fetal syndrome during pregnancy through information, support, and research. The events highlight awareness and provide hope to these families.
