Who can run in the race?
If my child misses his scheduled race, can he run with another group?
Is there a registration fee?
There is no registration fee, but donations to Huntsville Hospital Foundation are appreciated and will benefit pediatric oncology at Huntsville Hospital for Women & Children.
To officially place in any race a child must cross the finish line alone. You may run with your child, but you cannot assist in a placement. Make sure your child understands the race course. Each child must begin at the starting line to qualify for a placement ribbon or T-shirt.
Who receives a T-shirt?
Each child who finishes the race will receive a T-shirt and a participation ribbon. There will only be one T-shirt per child regardless of the number of times the child runs. Sizes will consist of youth x-small, youth small, youth medium, youth large, adult small, adult medium and adult large, and will be distributed on a first-come first-serve basis.
Kids helping kids with cancer!
Kids today are beating cancer better than ever before (the 5-year survival rate is now 80 percent compared to 60 percent in the mid 1970s). Huntsville Hospital for Women & Children provides special medical care for kids with cancer—and you can help!
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Fun Run participants are invited to help local kids with cancer and support pediatric oncology at Huntsville Hospital for Women & Children.
Start collecting donations today from family and friends and bring them with you on race day. You will receive a special keepsake to show that you are helping kids with cancer!
Huntsville Hospital for Women & Children serves pediatric oncology patients and their families from the Tennessee Valley.
Donations may also be mailed to: Huntsville Hospital Foundation, 101 Sivley Rd., Huntsville, AL 35801.
