Runners, joggers, and walkers will step it up to fight blood cancers by participating in the 4th Annual All for a Cure Run/Walk for Leukemia and Lymphoma in Kenosha. The two-mile walk / four-mile run takes place Sunday, September 29, along the Lake Michigan shoreline.
The event, benefiting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, begins at 8 a.m. at the Simmons Island Park Pavilion in Kenosha (see map).
Advance registration is available online through Friday, September 27, with a $20 entry fee. An online promotional code (ALL2013) may save race participants $5 per entry, if still valid.
Jogging strollers and leashed pets are welcome in this event.
Packet pickup is scheduled for race-day, starting at 6:30 a.m. After the race, awards will be presented to the overall top male and female, as well as top male and female entries in various age categories.
Miss Racine Elise Elmblad will sing the National Anthem to start the All for a Cure walk/run on September 29 in Kenosha.
