The event attracted more than 600 runners from as far away as Texas, with large representations from Florida, Tennessee, Georgia and South Carolina. The event is the foundation’s largest fundraiser of the year. The foundation serves all children ages 17 and under in Jackson, Swain, Cherokee, Swain, Graham and Haywood counties who have cancer.
