This will be my 5th year doing this race. What is it, you ask? It’s called The Race. It’s a very small, very exciting one-mile family event. There’s a run and a walk. It’s in a shopping plaza. There’s live music, there’s a bounce house, there’s face painting. But most importantly, it’s the cause that draws the participants. You see, The Race gives 100% of the proceeds to the University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center, which is dedicated to research, raising awareness, and finding the cure for breast cancer.
“The idea for The Race was originated twelve years ago by Josh Berns, then 13 years old, and Danielle Berns, then 11 years old. Josh and Danielle began Kids for the Cure, now known as The Race, as a way to harness young people to actively fight to eradicate breast cancer. The Race is a family event, where children learn that they can make a difference by raising both money for research and awareness about the disease. Everyone knows someone whose life has been affected by breast cancer, and Josh and Danielle’s ideas for The Race fueled their passion to help others who may benefit from early detection and the research advances that are being used to save and prolong lives.”
