Timed Event

This 5K race is in remembrance of Daniel Myslivecek, who lost his battle with Melanoma at the age of 16. A friend of Daniel’s organized the first 5K in 2005 to help the family with medical costs. Daniel ran in that first race and died 4 months later from his illness. The 5K has continued with the support of our community and each year the proceeds are given to a family or organization that helps children with a life-threatening illness while heightening Melanoma awareness.

THE RACE WILL START DESPITE WEATHER AT 9:00am

THE RACE WILL HAPPEN DESPITE WEATHER

Registration opens race day at 8:30am, regardless of weather the race will start at 9:30am. If registrants decide not to run their proceeds will be donated to this years race recipient.  The goal is to be in person, but if we need to move the race virtual because of COVID-19 we will let all registrants know as soon as possible.

THIS YEARS PROCEEDS

There are no refunds, all proceeds will be donated to help support Cody and Alyssa Lansberry. Cody and Alyssa, a 2008 Churchville-chili grad, are expecting a baby boy in March. He has been diagnosed with a rare birth defect (called Bladder/cloacal Exstrophy) which will require surgeries and an extended stay in the hospital after he is born. We are proud to support them in their journey and help in whatever way we can as they welcome their son in a few weeks.
