Participating in this race reminds individuals that there is life-after the limitations of cancer.   So come out and put some SOLE into this race! We ALL know someone who has been affected by cancer. Did you know that your registration helps to feed patients and their families during chemotherapy, radiation and supportive surgeries?    REGISTER TODAY and make a difference in someone's life!
