The fourth annual Maryville Kicks Cancer 5K and 1-Mile Fun Run will be held at 9 a.m. on April 16, beginning at the Donius University Center on campus. The event benefits Maryville’s own Kids Rock Cancer organization, an innovative program that helps children successfully cope with the unique emotional challenges that accompany a cancer diagnosis.
An opening ceremony and memorial balloon release will kick off the event, which also features free food, a raffle, survivor recognition, and other activities.
Participants may register for the 5K or 1-mile run, as well as make donations, by visiting the Maryville Kicks Cancer website.
