Create a TEAM to honor someone special or to show your support! Teams may include those who register and those who make donations whether or not they can attend. All teams will be posted on this website (see below) and celebrated at the Lap-a-Thon. The teams that raise the most money and run the most laps will receive prizes donated by local merchants.
This Lap-a-Thon honors more than 30 friends and loved ones! All their names are listed below (scroll down).
Those who register or donate $10 or more will have the opportunity to buy balloons ($2 each) to honor your loved ones in their cancer awareness colors. Balloons will be displayed on our recognition wall in the track & field area.
At the conclusion of the Lap-a-Thon, we will read the names of all those to be recognized and release the balloons skyward! Make sure you have provided their names to us and see the Colors of Cancer Awareness here to choose your balloon color(s).
You can pay for your balloons at the same time that you register online — or you can make a separate online donation now to pay for the balloon(s) you want. Be sure to tell us which colors you want in the comments section of the form.
