LYNDHURST -- It's time to lace up your running shoes and get set to raise money for breast cancer research during The Race, the 8th annual, one-mile walk/run held at Legacy Village on Sunday, May 8.
This year's proceed recipients are Susan G. Komen for the Cure Northeast Ohio and The Gathering Place.
The idea for The Race was originated in 2004 by Josh Berns, then 12 years old, and Danielle Berns, then 10 years old.
Josh and Danielle began The Race as a way to harness young people to actively fight to eradicate breast cancer.
The Race is a family event, where children can learn that they can make a difference by raising both money for research and awareness about the disease.
Everyone knows someone whose life has been affected by breast cancer, and Josh and Danielle's ideas for The Race fueled their passion to help others who may benefit from early detection and the research advances that are being used to save and prolong lives.
The Race is a one-mile walk/run to raise money for breast cancer research.
When: Sunday, May 8 at 9 a.m. (registration begins at 8 a.m.)
Where: Legacy Village in Lyndhurst
