2019 Melissa’s Race

May 18 @ 7:00 am - 9:30 am

2019 Melissa’s Race

Each year Melissa’s Race grows, raising more awareness for brain cancer and more money for brain cancer research.You and your honey can have a wonderful Saturday morning by participating in this 5K race that is suitable for both runners and walkers. Serious runners will be glad to know that this is a chip-timed race, while casual runners and walkers will enjoy the beautiful scenery of the St. Johns River and charming storefronts in this bustling, historic city.

If you can’t make it to Sanford you can participate virtually, anywhere, anytime before May 18, 2019. Either way you’ll earn a t-shirt, a unique medal, and support a great cause! Melissa’s Race is created by Melissa Vosburg Inc, a non-profit organization created in memory of Melissa Vosburg, a Sanford-area teacher who passed away in 2013 from Gioblastoma Multiforme, the most common form of brain cancer. Prizes will be awarded to individuals and teams who have top fundraising results! All funds raised for Melissa’s Race benefit the Florida Hospital Cancer Institute.

NEW THIS YEAR! Melissa’s Race is working to create a “Beers for Brains” block party along 1st Street in downtown Sanford, which is part of the race route. Whether you participate in the race or not, you can take part of this block party with some Sanford’s best breweries, eateries, and more! More information will be shared on MelissasRace.org and on Melissa’s Race Facebook and Instagram pages.
