Get set for a fun day of fitness with a Christmas flair. The Third - Annual Candy Cane 5K is returning to the Daytona Beach area!
The third annual Candy Cane 5K will offer a fun way to stay fit, meet friends and raise money to benefit those in need. Christmas-themed costumes are welcome — prizes will be awarded! Run or walk with family, friends, co-workers, neighbors or classmates as you have fun and spread Christmas cheer.
It’s all about giving back
The event is a memorial fundraiser to continue the work of the late Chuck Strasser. Chuck was a much-loved member of the Daytona Beach-area community who passed away Jan. 1, 2015, after a valiant battle with cancer. He was a dedicated husband, father, businessman and friend to all, whose contagious smile and habit of sacrificing his time and money for those in need made him an example and mentor to all.
Chuck’s wife, Gina, and daughters Faith and Destiny are leading the effort to keep his work going with the 5K. With the help of Tomoka Christian Church and Runner's High Timing and Race Management, the Strassers hope to leave a lasting legacy honoring Chuck’s vision to help children not just in Volusia County but all over the world. Please join them in partnership. Not everyone is able to go on Missions, but your money made it possible for those that do and made a difference in the lives of so many.
Packet Pickup will be held at Tomoka Christian Church from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday, December 14th.
