The Danny Gans Memorial Champions Run for Life Hosted by Donny Osmond benefits the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation (NCCF).
This special event, hosted by legendary entertainer and international star Donny Osmond, will continue to honor the memory of Las Vegas entertainer Danny Gans and to support, as Danny did, critically ill children and their families living in Southern Nevada.
This year’s event has adopted a “Rock-A-Tutu” theme and will give awards for the Best Tutu and Largest Team.
Runners, walkers and community supporters are invited to compete in the 5K run, the fun run/walk and team race. Following the 5K, there will be an inspirational mini-run for children with critical illnesses called the Champions Run for Life – a one-of-a-kind and unforgettable event in Las Vegas. In addition to the run, there will be fun for the entire family including food, drinks, raffle drawings, bounce houses and entertainment.
The Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation’s Champions Run for Life following the 5K celebrates children ages two through 18 with life-threatening illnesses. These special participants will be applauded by guest cheerleaders and mascots as they run, walk or wheel themselves around the bases and will receive a special medal for bravery in their battle against disease.
The competitive 5K run will award the top male and female finishers with a $300 cash prize, the second place male and female finishers will each receive $200 and the third place male and female runners will receive $100 each. Medals will be awarded in all 5K divisions and to children from kindergarten to fifth in the Fun Run. All participants will each receive a race t-shirt and goodie bag.
All entries on race day will be $40. Teams of 10 or more are $17 per person. Participants may register online at www.active.com or on the day of the race at Town Square Las Vegas from 6:30 a.m. to 7:25 a.m. For questions about the race, please contact the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation at 702.735.8434 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
