Please join us on Sunday, October 2nd for our 11th Annual Heroes 5k & Family Festival. Enjoy a scenic autumn course at Darlington Park, challenge yourself, and meet inspirational local families who, with your participation, you are helping to carry through their battles with cancer.

Make your race really count by becoming a Reach Athlete! Create your personal fundraising page after you register to join a motivating community working together to raise funds and awareness for Family Reach. 

As a Reach Athlete, you will be supporting families like Parker's.

 

Parker was diagnosed with ALL leukemia in the winter of 2015,  The family consists of a mother and father who are in a domestic partnership. Dad and mom had both started new jobs shortly before Parker was diagnosed,  therefore NOT eligible for Family Medical Leave Act.  Parker's mom had to stop working to care for the child and is at risk of losing her job and health benefits as a result. In addition, both parents are unpaid for their absences, therefore they are experiencing a major loss in income. Due to some unique circumstances with his diagnosis, Parker recently had to be intubated and remain in the pediatric intensive care unit for the 3 months. In addition, the family's income is just high enough, that they do not qualify for SSI or other government funding or other income based support programs.  Family Reach has supported this family by paying two months of their rent.
