Due to low registrations, The Run For Love has been canceled for 2017. Gibson's
Run For Love
was the idea of two 9-yr old girls who wanted to help kids with cancer. The idea came one day while the girls were at recess talking about their recent haircuts. One idea led to another and soon they had a very detailed plan. The idea was to have a race and afterward hair cutting stations where people could cut and donate their hair to help make wigs for kids. Included would be food and entertainment and a way to help kids with cancer feel special. It would be called “Run For Love”.

Little did they know that the day we received approval to partner with ProMedica Toledo Children’s Hospital, their classmate would announce that she had a rare type of cancer. This made the girls want to make the event a reality even more.

Wamer'sAs parents we saw this as an amazing opportunity to show that the idea of two 9-yr olds could make a huge impact, so we committed ourselves to making Run For Love a reality.

After a HUGE successful first year, the second annual Run For Love will take place on July 8, 2017 at Hensville in Downtown Toledo. Run For Love will consist of the following:

All proceeds raised by the Run For Love will go to benefit the following Children's Cancer organizations:

  • Ronald McDonald House Charities of NW Ohio: Ronald McDonald House allows families the comfort that comes from togetherness during a medical crisis. Without the Ronald McDonald House, families would face expensive hotel and meal costs, long commutes, sleeping, often uncomfortably, in a chair or on a cot at the hospital, or, the worst alternative of all, being absent. Research studies and human intuition agree: Sick children who are surrounded by the people they love get better faster than those whose loved ones cant be with them. And, parents and caregivers who are present and active in their children’s care are less stressed and better able to provide love and reassurance.
  • Children With Hair Loss: Children With Hair Loss has never charged a child. Currently, they provide customized human hair replacement and care kit to over 300 children a year.
  • St. Baldrick Foundation: St. Baldrick’s donors and volunteers have enabled the foundation to fund over $178 million in grants, allowing the foundation to fund more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. government.

Please pass this on to anyone you think can help us! The more successful the event, the more kids we can help.  Please contact us with any questions at info@therunforlove.com.

Sincerely – Jacey & Mackenna.
