American Cancer Society: C2C (Columbus to Cincy) Relay Event

C2C Logo

 

Healthy Columbus is excited to promote and support the 3rd Annual C2C Run to honor cancer survivors, increase awareness about reducing cancer risk, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society fight the disease.   

Relay running from Columbus to Cincinnati is a life changing opportunity. I fell into this because I love running, but we all know someone that has been affected by cancer or gone through it ourselves. The challenges that go with a cancer diagnosis and treatment can be overwhelming, but with the support of friends, family, and organizations like American Cancer Society it can be an empowering and life affirming process too. I am lucky enough to be healthy now and know that the funds and awareness this run raises are well worth the challenge of relay running the 131 miles to Cincinnati. I hope that my city family will join me!     Kelli Hykes, Columbus Public Health
