'Squealin' for a Cure' benefits American Cancer Society


KENANSVILLE, NC (WWAY) -- The upcoming Glow Run to benefit the American Cancer Society is being called an opportunity to have fun with the whole family on a Saturday night.

'Squealin' for a Cure' is a 5K run to benefit the American Cancer Society and will be hosted by the Murphy Brown Relay for Life team, timed by Run the East. Though it is open to all runners, it is a sanctioned race for those who feel like competing with others.

Entry fees in advance are $25 and include a t-shirt for all who register by Wednesday, March 19. Those who register the day of the race will pay a $30 race fee.

You can help light the route to a cure for cancer and honor loved ones who have battled the disease by purchasing a luminary will help light the course that our runners and walkers will travel through the town of Kenansville. Flames of HOPE will be lit at nightfall to honor cancer survivors or in remembrance of those who have lost their battle with cancer.

These flames will burn throughout the race event, serving as a reminder of the purpose for Relay for Life. To register and learn more about the event, including prices for youth runners, check out this website:
