We are so glad you’ve found the home of the third annual Step by Step Run/Walk! It is our goal to continue this fun, family-centered atmosphere that will be the annual event you won’t want to miss! Whether you are a serious runner looking for a competitive race, or a casual runner or walker that wants to help a great cause, this is the place to be on Sunday, April 14, 2013.
Step by Step offers something for everyone: a 5K run, 2K walk, and 1 mile fun run. All the excitement is based at our headquarters in Downtown Monticello. The course has been changed this year, but still showcases historic, beautifully renovated downtown Monticello and the rolling hills of nearby residential areas.
Did we mention a good cause? The Step by Step Run/Walk is a fundraiser dedicated to helping raise money and awareness to support the American Cancer Society in its lifesaving mission to eliminate cancer as a major health issue.
The motto for our event is to “celebrate hope.” Cancer touches so many lives each day, but we must continue the fight for a cure! Just as those who battle this disease must take their journey step by step, you too can join forces with us and be part of a fundraiser that can benefit this great cause. We urge you to join us, and we will do it together – “Step by Step.”
