This 5K certified run/walk winds its way through the heart of small town America with the purpose of supporting cancer patients as their hero. Named in honor of Jessica Froelick who lost her battle with breast cancer at the age of 34 leaving behind a husband and two young boys, this run/walk recognizes the hero within each of us. Jessica was the epitome of the compassionate advocate for cancer survivors like herself. She supported others going through treatment in every way she could - through fundraisers, benefits, volunteering at Oneida Healthcare, and lending assistance wherever she was needed. She was a source of strength and grace and will always be missed. This run/walk is our way of honoring her example - as her heroes. We transform into everyday heroes each time we act out of love, showing courage in the face of overwhelming fear by holding a hand, offering comfort, and assuring our support.
Do you have someone in your life you wish to lift up? Then put on your hero's cape and join us on Saturday, September 25, 2021 for our annual event in Oneida NY.
Event proceeds benefit those that are battling cancer that live in the Oneida and surrounding communities. This past year we were able to help over 100 families all because of heroes like you.
