In keeping up with the annual tradition, the event will begin with a commemorative balloon release sponsored by 4Change Energy, celebrating the families served throughout the year and honoring the memory of Taylor Brewton and Allison “Allie” Scott who both passed away from Leukemia.
Following the balloon release, participants of all ages can join in the Fun Run & 5K.
