Blood, Sweat and Tears 5-Miler and 5K
Join us in 2019!

The Blood, Sweat & Tears 5-Miler and 5-K is proud to team up with the Emily Whitehead Foundation. We have the same goal; to see blood cancer eradicated from the face of the earth. In 2019, participants can sign up to do the run, and raise money on their own to donate to the Foundation. There is no minimum to raise since every dollar is a valuable tool to help end blood cancer.
