Let's have some fun while raising money for a great cause!

When the pediatric oncologist walked in we knew she had news we weren't prepared to hear.

Our son, Indy, was diagnosed with Stage 3 Wilms tumor at 3 months. We felt that we should do our part to raise money for childhood cancer research and for families affected by childhood cancer. This is why we created the Indy Races.

According to the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation, only 4% of the billions of dollars that are annually spent on cancer research and treatments are directed toward treating childhood cancer.

For the first time, the Indy Races will be in-person this year! There will also be a virtual option.

The Indy Races will take place at Lake Shawnee at Shelter 1, on the 17th of September (Childhood Cancer Awareness Month).

There will be a 1-mile, 5K, 10K, or race around the lake (6.5 miles) option.

You can walk, run, or jog your selected distance for a chance to win $1000*, $500*, $100*, $50*.

If you do the virtual option You can walk, run, jog, bike, or swim the following options ANYWHERE - inside, outside, at the gym, or even on a treadmill!

If you want to donate to this great cause and not participate in a race please do so. Every dollar makes a difference!

Of the 4 distances, there will be 4 winners. Each winner chooses one of the four organizations to donate their prize money.

All of the money raised will be going to:
Team Blake
American Childhood Cancer Organization
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
Children's Cancer Research Fund
