During our past three years, everyone enjoyed the great scenic route, the food, and great race atmosphere. Hundreds of participants came out to support the cause last year. Let's make this year bigger and better!!!
Some important information… "Friends of Melana" was named in memory of Melana Matson, a nine year old girl from Garrettsville, who in 2009, was diagnosed with glioma brain cancer. Glioma brain cancer is an incurbale and inoperable disease. She lost her battle just 9 months after her diagnosis. In Melana's memory and others affected by this disease, "Friends of Melana" was formed…an organization dedicated to helping fund the fight against children's glioma cancer. We are kicking off The Fourth Annual FRIENDS OF MELANA 5K AND 1 MILE FUN RUN/WALK in Melana's meomory and to benefit this worthy cause.
**Food and drinks will be provided post race for all participants!**
