The Rase Strong 5k and 1K Kids run were inspired by Nancy Rase and was established to support ongoing cancer research. Race for fun or for the cause!
Nancy Rase (pronounced Race-ee) was diagnosed with an advanced stage of a rare type of cancer. Nancy passed away on December 6, 2014 at the age of 42, less than a year after her diagnosis. Her strength and courage throughout her journey inspired the phrase “Rase Strong” among those that knew her and knew of her. Nancy is a beloved wife, mother, sister, daughter, grand daughter and friend. She was also an avid runner who enjoyed and participating in area races.
In 2015, event proceeds will benefit the Fred and Pamela Buffett Cancer Center and the Drew & Samantha Rase Educational Fund.
