Melissa’s Race 2017

April 29, 2017 @ 7:30 am - 9:00 am


Melissas Race

The 2nd annual Melissa’s Race to Battle Brain Cancer will be held on Saturday, April 29, 2017 at Fort Mellon Park in Sanford, Florida.  The run/walk is open to participants of all fitness levels and runners will be timed. The true spirit of the event encourages walkers and runners alike to start or join Family & Friend, Neighborhood or Company Teams to revel in the community around them and celebrate their fundraising efforts together at this wonderfully spirited event.

This event is in memory of Melissa Vosburg, a resident of Sanford and teacher at Midway Elementary School, who was lost to brain cancer in 2013. The goal of the race is to raise money for brain cancer research. This event is dedicated to continuing her dream: her race.
