Welcome to the 1st annual Trails for Life 5 Mile Run/Walk. As we would like to host an annual traditional race to raise funds for different causes in the area, this year our efforts will be helping the AVON 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer. All proceeds from the event will be donated to the foundation to benefit cancer patients and their families. Funds also go towards research to end this disease. This year?s run is scheduled for Saturday, September 8, 2012 at 8am. The 5 mile course takes runners and walkers through the beautiful scenic Memorial Lake State Park. While the race is certified for those race enthusiasts, it is just as fun for families and friends to come out and enjoy the great outdoors and experience the thrill of being a part of a new community tradition.Awards will be Given to: 1.
