Event Description

4th annual Joey's Wings 5K run/walk will be on Feb. 24th, 2018! Let's dress up as pirate or princess and run for children battling cancer.
When you run/walk with us, you will be creating awareness and give HOPE to the 46 children and their families that are diagnosed every day. Obstacle courses represent the obstacles that children with cancer have to overcome during treatment: chemo, radiation, pills, testing... Proceeds of the run go to pediatric cancer research, patients care, and support for Andrew's family in Gainesville, Fl. Baby Andrew was diagnosed with infant lymphoblastic leukemia in April, 2016 and is currently treated at the Shands Children's Hospital.
Joey's Wings Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit charity, was established in 2014 in the memory of Joey, a 10-year-old boy who loved to run, but was taken from us by childhood cancer on Nov. 26, 2014. 100% of all donations made will be used towards research and treatment options, parents support and advocacy.
Race day registration and packet pick up begins at 7:30 AM. T-shirts will be first come first serve for race day registrants.
The 1-mile obstacle course fun run and 5k are two separate routes. Fun run starts about 10 minutes after the 5k.
