Nick's Run 2017

View the Results & Awards for the 2017 Nick's Run to be Healed

Welcome to the 8th Annual Nick’s Run to be Healed 5K and family carnival! As you can see from last year’s highlights and news coverage, this isn’t just a fundraiser to support children with cancer. It’s a day for everyone affected by cancer to come together and make a difference in a child’s life. It’s a time to raise one another up so that families with children battling cancer can get through this tough time knowing they are not alone.

Feel free to run, walk, do zumba, enjoy the carnival and meet some amazing people. All the money raised stays local and we will do our best to make sure this is a day to remember. Thank you!

Thank you for registering for Nick’s Run to be Healed 5K, whether it’s for Nick’s Dash, Luke’s Mile, the 2-mile walk or 5K run. With your generous donation we have already raised over $21,000! This money directly impacts local children and young adults in our area who are battling cancer. Lucas Santoro, who is Nick’s Warrior, was diagnosed with leukemia in June 2014. Lucas’ family is very grateful for foundations like Nick’s Fight to be Healed who supported him during his battle. So they give back to make a difference.
