8th Annual Addison Jo Blair 5K

The 8th Annual Addison Jo Blair 5K is scheduled for Saturday, May 19th at 8:00 am. Registration is open at www.active.com. When the Addison Jo Blair 5K began in 2011 it was done by several wonderful ladies who decided to put on a 5K to raise funds for our family as Addison was in the fight of her life battling cancer. Addison was given a race shirt, the #1 race bib and a goody bag that we hung in her hospital room. It was a wonderful event that brought so many together to show their support for our precious Addison and our family. When Addison passed and our family began the Addison Jo Blair Foundation we knew that the 5K was the event we wanted to focus on and call our own. Our foundation board has ran this event for the past 7 years and we have had a tremendous amount of support whether it be in sponsorship's, participants or community members helping us out on race day. We truly appreciate everyone who has been a part of making this event run so smoothly over the past 8 years. As a board we feel that it is now time for this event to come to an end and so this will be our last Addison Jo Blair 5K event. This is not the end to the Addison Jo Blair Foundation as we will continue our efforts of raising funds for kids with cancer, assisting with the needs of the Addison Jo Blair Cancer Center at Norton Children’s Hospital and doing all we can to help raise awareness for childhood cancer. We will still be working to raise funds to help these families who are going through such a tough journey. We would love to see all those who can make it and be a part of this great event at our last 5K on Saturday, May 19th. Thanks and God Bless!
