Honoring:
The Layla Grace Children's Cancer Research Foundation was formed in April of 2010, after the passing of two year old Layla Grace Marsh, from Neuroblastoma.  The Foundation's mission is to raise funds for research into high-risk pediatric cancers and to empower the families currently undergoing the battle.  For more information, please visit www.laylagrace.org.

Course:
The 5K route will start inside the Berry Center parking lot, turning left on West Road, and u-turning at Greenhouse and back around into the parking lot area.  The 5K course is USAT&F certified.  No Strollers are allowed on West Road, for safety reasons.  However, strollers are allowed in the One Mile Kids Fun Run, which will take place inside the Berry Center Parking Lot.  No skateboards or rollerskates are allowed on either course.
