About Us…

This will be the sixth year for the Purple Run!

Hard to believe, our Relay For Life team started this event 6 years ago, with just 78 participants pre-registered!

We haven’t looked back either! Last year we had more than 217 participants, and raised over $6,000!!!

For those that are walking or running to honor or remember someone who has had a cancer diagnoses, As well as those that just enjoy running or walking for a cause, or just to run against their best time… The Purple Run is a great way to get your early spring events started!

All of the proceeds from this event go to the Relay For Life, the American Cancer Society’s signature fundraising event! After expenses last year, we were proud to give more than $6,000 to ACS!!!

This event has been such an inspiration for all who participate as everyone is fighting cancer at the same time!
