About This Activity

What is Love for Landon?

Love for Landon 5K Run/Walk is an event created to benefit a local 5 year old boy who was diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer called Rhabdomyosarcoma. While none of us can imagine the pain and suffering this sweet little boy has had to endure or the heartache his family feels while he fights for his life, we can, however, come together as a community to give our support and show our love to one of Ocala's own sons.
