September is Blood Cancer Awareness Month. Our gang at J&A Racing includes Josh Wade, Director of Creative Design and Lymphoma survivor! To honor Josh and to support the amazing work of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society | Team in Training and their fight against blood cancers, a portion of all Champagne Gang 5K registration will be donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
While we hoped to host everyone this year, our highest priority will always be the health and safety of our participants, volunteers, spectators, community, and staff. The decision to shift our October events to home editions was made after working tirelessly with our state and local government, health officials, and race partners to explore all possibilities to host a safe event that includes the celebration we love.
Global Running day is celebrated by millions of people around the world on the first Wednesday of June. It is a celebration of movement. Whether you run one mile or 100, this day is for you. Run, walk, or chase your kids. It is free and open to the public. All you have to is put on a pair of running shoes, and get moving!
“Whether you run, walk or simply get off the couch and move, we are here to do what we have always done. We want to bring the running community together while supporting a greater cause. If you miss races as much as we do, sign up for one of our virtual options to keep the spirit of racing going,” said Amy Frostick.
