The Run for the Ribbons 5K and Family Fun 1K is a colorful day of spirited competition, cancer awareness, survivor celebration and exhilarating horse racing at the renowned Stoneybrook Steeplechase. Runners and walkers in each event participate in honor or memory of family and friends, and all proceeds benefit The Foundation of FirstHealth's Cancer CARE Fund.
The Foundation of FirstHealth's Cancer CARE Fund provides assistance to local cancer patients and their families at a difficult time. Since 2000, the Cancer CARE Fund has disbursed more than $800,000 to support cancer patients in our community. We are able to provide advocacy to our patients through CARE-Net, as well as assistance with transportation, medications and other cancer-related items when needed by the patient. As these funds are disbursed, we remind those whose lives have been touched by cancer that there is an entire community of love and care behind them to support them in their journey.
Show your support for this event and The Foundation of FirstHealth Cancer CARE Fund, which provides for cancer patients in our community.
