Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature fundraising event. Money raised goes toward:

  • Promoting cancer awareness.
  • Supporting cancer patients through their treatments
  • Funding research to find a cure.

Kalamazoo Area Runners is organizing a running competition for the event. The competition will involve raising money and running (or walking) as many miles as possible.

The competition will have 2 divisions:

Most Miles Run – Run as many miles as you can during the event.

Most Funds Raised – Raise as much money as you can for running those miles.

KAR will award following prizes:

  1. Event donations of $200 and $100 respectively in honor of top 2 female “Most Miles Run” finishers.
  2. Event donations of $200 and $100 respectively in honor of top 2 male “Most Miles Run” finishers.
  3. Event donations of $400, $200 and $100 in honor of top 3 “Most Funds Raised” finishers.
  4. Event donation of $1,000 to male or female runner who places first in both divisions. Winning this one would be legendary.
