Melissa’s Race 2018

April 28, 2018 @ 7:30 am - 9:30 pm


The 3rd annual Melissa’s Race to Battle Brain Cancer will be held on Saturday, April 28, 2018 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 event is a fund raiser for brain cancer research.
