We are SO excited to do it again! Join us Sunday, October 15th for the SECOND Annual Abby Furco Memorial Color Fun Run honoring Abby, our beloved friend who passed away too soon. 

REGISTRATION IS STILL OPEN BUT LESS THAN 50 SPOTS LEFT! Event T-shirt sizes guaranteed for all registrations before October 1st. 

Our color fun run/walk, is a non-bib, approx 5k course filled with color stations throughout. You can run, walk, push a stroller...bring your entire family!! Come out and celebrate the life and memory of Abby Furco while also giving back to childhood cancer foundations that helped her, her family and other childhood cancer fighters!! 

All funds collected, after race costs are covered, will be donated to charity! Our 2023 event will be benefitting St. Baldrick's Foundation - a foundation that funded research allowing Abby to live for 11 years with childhood cancer and its effects. We continue Abby's legacy of supporting others and fund research for those fighting childhood cancer.
We are excited to announce that your donations through this event will be tax deductible as our newly founded 501c3 pending Abby's Legacy Foundation is the event host!!! Please see donate page for more information.

Check out our current sponsors, we are so thankful for them. We are looking for additional business & individual race sponsors to help cover the race costs so more money can go to charity! Please contact [email protected] for more info. Last year our event was 100% community sponsored & all registration fees went to charity...we hope to do it again!!
