Registration for our 2019 race will open in January. Join us for a lovely fall run with a purpose. I Run For… brings our community together while raising funds for cancer research and other humanitarian causes. We will, once again, be part of the Empire Road Race Series, and we’ll offer the Team Spirit Challenge.

Our runners, volunteers and sponsors made our 2018 event memorable!

The total charitable giving in 2018 was $8,000, which pushed us past the $20,000 mark since our organization formed in 2014. This could not have happened without the support of the entire community. You are awesome – THANK YOU!

Gifts were as follows:

  • $3,000 to the American Red Cross Southern Tier Chapter
  • $3,000 to The James at The Ohio State University ($2,000 to The James Fund for Life, and $1,000 for the Lymphoma Research Fund) – In honor of our race, The Retired Professional Fire Fighters Cancer Fund donated $500 to the Leukemia Resarch Fund
  • $2,000 to the National Brain Tumor Society in honor of Team Newbsanity (pictured above), winner of the Team Spirit Challenge

“I highly recommend this race to all my friends. There is a 5k, a half marathon, and a full marathon, and the proceeds go to cancer research! Can’t beat that!”

– Michael Foos, 2017 I Run For… Marathon Finisher
