Your Team. Your Impact.
Participating in the Northeast Ohio Race for the Cure with a team multiplies the fun, the laughter and the memories you share on Race day. Rally around someone you know who was just diagnosed, someone who has fought the battle, or someone who may have lost the battle. Together, with your friends, family and co-workers, you can make an even greater impact than you could alone.
