Mission Statement

Roanne's Race aims to bring the community together for an energizing run/walk event, and encourages runners to support us in helping to decrease the number of colon cancer cases in people under 50.

Description

Roanne's Race is a dream come to actuality in honor of Roanne Cairel. Before losing her battle with colon cancer at the age of 24, her friends and family told her they wanted to do something for her in her name, to honor her. She expressed that she wanted a 5k for colon cancer research, and they took that idea and "ran with it".

Roanne's Race is a 5K/10k run/walk event that will take place every year on the last Saturday of March, rain or shine. This year Roanne's Race will take place on March 28, 2020.

All of the proceeds from the race will be donated to support the research of colon cancer, specifically among young people. This year we will be repeating our support of Colon Cancer Alliance and its under 50 awareness initiative
