Taos Youth and Family Center

Join us on Saturday June 7, 2014 for the annual event that supports local residents who are facing cancer. All money raised stays local to support Holy Cross Hospital's Cancer Support Services! We all know someone who has been affected by cancer; whether a family member, friend or neighbor who has experienced cancer themselves or cared for someone who was or is going through cancer. This event helps them receive non-medical support at no cost.

There will be three events: a 5K Walk and Fun Run, a timed 5K Race and a timed 10K Race. Our scenic course begins and ends at the Taos Youth and Family Center. Each participant will receive a For the Health of It! t-shirt and wrist band.

Register to participate as an individual, start a team, or join an existing team. Awards will be given to the top 2 age group finishers in the 10K & 5K Races. Prizes will also be awarded to Walk & Fun Run teams and individuals in the following categories:

  • TEAMS: Largest team, Best team costume, Team raising the most money
  • INDIVIDUALS: Traveled the greatest distance,  Best individual costume, Person raising the most money
